In A Sand County Almanac, Aldo Leopold writes eloquently and regretfully about a government trapper’s killing of what may have been one of the last grizzly bears in Arizona. Although Leopold and other foresters had never actually seen the grizzly, they had seen bear signs: huge tracks beside muddy springs and a grizzly-killed cow, its head reduced to pulp, “as if she had collided head-on with a fast freight.” Mourning the grizzly’s loss, Leopold writes: “Escudilla still hangs on the horizon, but when you see it you no longer think of bear. It’s only a mountain now.” Mexican gray wolves have been reintroduced to Arizona in the Blue Range Primitive Area not far from the Escudilla Wilderness, and at some distant future time the grizzly may be restored to the wildlands along the Arizona- New Mexico border. In the meantime, all we’ve got is a mountain, but what a mountain it is. This trail guide covers an area with 3 miles of trails.
