#MyCochiseAdventure — Mother Nature was feeling her oats when she made Cochise County, Arizona. She shaped an area rich in color and cozy climate. Sunsets flame with color, majestic lavender mountains embrace the region, national forests undulate hues of green and gold under vast blue skies. The high mountain climate and temperatures inspire year-round travel.

Once a booming copper mining town, today’s Bisbee is firmly established as community of, and for, artists. Since the 1960s, artists have made their home in Bisbee, which now hosts over 10 galleries.
