Colossal Cave Mountain Park

March 20th, 2013 by Betty Ross


Colossal Cave is about a 10 mile drive from Desert Dove Bed & Breakfast. A scenic drive with great views. More then just the cave. The La Posta Quemada Ranch Museum 

The Ranch Headquarters House on La Posta Quemada Ranch was built by John S. Sullivan in 1967 (the original adobe Ranch house burned to the ground in 1965). Today it houses a museum with two focuses: the human history and the natural history—specifically that of caves—of Colossal Cave Mountain Park and the Cienega Corridor region.

CCC Camp  (WW II era) Civilian Conservation Corps.  The CCC was created in 1933 “for the relief of unemployment through the performance of useful public work, and for other purposes.”One of the most successful New Deal programs of the Great Depression, it existed less than ten years, but left a legacy of strong, handsome roads, bridges, and buildings throughout the United States.

You can enjoy some hiking, picnicking, horseback riding!

Collin Shook Trio

Wed 3/13/13 – 6:30 PM The hard-driving sound of the Collin Shook Trio is a departure from the Tucson jazz scene. His playing is a fusion between the Hard-Bop of the 60’s and the modern composition of today, mixed with his classical roots.

The Greg Morton Band is local to southern Arizona.Greg Morton was born in Memphis, Tennessee. He began to play the guitar when he was around 12 years of age.After sharpening his skills playing traditional bluegrass music, Greg began to apply his talents to other musical styles, including country and jazz. Greg’s travels eventually brought him to Tucson, Arizona. Far from the hills of Tennessee, Greg found that the ‘high lonesome’ sounds of bluegrass music were already reverberating through the canyons of the Sonoran Desert in southern Arizona. Today, Greg plays in various venues throughout southern Arizona.

Miss Lana Rebel w/Kevin Michael Mayfield

Sat 3/16/13 – 12:00 PM
The Portland Mercury wrote that Miss Lana Rebel is “the badass matriarch of local dustbowl country.” It’s an appreciative nod to a songwriter whose presence can cut through the din of a crowded honky-tonk, and a voice that has been likened to ladies such as Loretta Lynn, and June Carter. She is widely known as an excellent country musician and songwriter, though her musical history is not quite so straightforward.
