Do you know Bisbee has magnificent waterfalls?  You can see them only after heavy monsoon rains.  If you should be in Bisbee during the monsoon season (July to mid September), be sure to take a drive to see this rare beautiful sight after it rains.

Starting from Old Bisbee, drive west on Hwy 80 and through the Mule Pass Tunnel.  Just 2 miles after you’ve passed the tunnel, there is a turnout on the left side of the highway where you can park.  Before you make the left turn, you should be able to hear the water running – a waterfall right next to the highway.  You’ll get better view of the waterfalls if you walk (southeast) towards Hidden Meadow Lane.  With your camera ready, look across the highway and up… zoom in.

Cochise County Sheriff Department has encouraged people not to climb up to the falls.  Water makes the rocks very slippery – dangerous for the climber as well as the rescuers.  Just a week ago, a teenager was hurt there:  fractured back, broken ribs and elbow.

Enjoy the photos and videos.  Leave the climbing to the pros.
