Abstract

The summer of 1975 found me in the heart of Geronimo County, Coronada National Forest, Douglas Ranger District, in southeast Arizona. I was quartered, along with a native population of desert rodents, at the remains of one of the forts built by the U.S. military in an effort to capture Geronimo and his band of renegades. Fortunately I did not run into any vengeful Apaches. I did chase some local history and learned that "the lifeline of the woods" (to quote Dr. Thomson) in Arizona can do more to make a person lost than saved. I spent one afternoon with the district ranger searching for three separate section markers, which on one occasion was a 2 by 3 foot sandstone rock marked by an X in the northeast corner amidst a field strewn with comparable rock.
