    Reminds me of the value of the journey vs the destination.

    I haven't been there and certainly didn't see the fire. But just from looking at a map and using your clues my first guess would be AZ 80 and the mountains would be the Chiracahuas.

    These are in New Mexico and I believe a little north of the Gadsden Purchase boundary. But the spot has a strong link to the history of S Arizona.

    I'm going riding in South Dakota for a week. so here's the answer now.

    The spot is Ft Cummings, about 15 miles north of Deming. It was a stage stop on the Butterfield route.
