    Oh, The Places You'll Go

    I've been out near Diamond Mountain for almost a year and it is only now that I have begun to realize what an amazing area Southeast Arizona is. With that in mind I offer these links to great locations around Diamond Mountain:

  • Chiricahua National Monument - This place has the wonderland of rocks, incredible rock formations that bring visitors from all over the world.
  • Coronado National Forest - There are a number of these mountain forests within one hour of DM and they are spectacular. There are an abundance of wildlife in these forest including: kotamundi, deer, parrots, javelinas, and bears.
  • Fort Bowie National Historic Site - The fort is right next door to DM. It was built to guard the trail for settlers and the help guard our spring.

    End of Term, End of Year

    Spring Term 2005 ended yesterday and with it the first year of Diamond Mountain University. Ask anyone who came and they'll probably tell you that it exceed their wildest dreams. It's been such a great school year and there's lots more to look forward to even this summer. Check out the official events page to see. I'll do my best to keep you posted throughout, temple pics and event news. I'll be in India for a while so don't get upset during August when there are no posts. I will do my best for you.

    Here are some photos from the last day's celebration.
