Fort Trail Professional Review and Guide

"“Certainly, under the light of a morning sun, this country is exceedingly lovely to look at,” geologist Burr Duval wrote of the Davis Mountains countryside. Duval was a member of an 1879 mineral expedition and kept a journal of his travels.

“On my right some four or five miles are rough and rugged iron Colored mountains, on my left are hills of nearly equal height, smoothly sloping and gently rounded, covered to their very summits with the most magnificent grasses, which even now look cured and not dead—Before me lies a gently undulating valley miles in extent... Not a living thing is in sight except a herd of antelope in the West—perhaps a mile away.”"
