About halfway between Safford, Arizona and Lordsburg, NM on US Highway 70, “The Old West Highway”, is Duncan, Arizona. Situated along the banks of the Gila River and nestled amongst fields of cotton, corn, chiles, and cattle ranches, Duncan evokes memories of small-town America. Yet, in its midst, one finds some of the finest places in the country to bird watch, or to hunt for fire agate. Check on birding conditions at the Simpson Hotel, and rockhounding tips at Rock-A-Buy Rocks and Gifts. Most of the local restaurants are on the “Salsa Trail”. RVers looking for a few fresh supplies should check out the Farmers Market across the river and down Old Virden Highway about a mile.
