St. David is quite high

It's at an elevation of around 3,700 feet, right next to the San Pedro river, which is one of the few rivers in Arizona left that still flow year round. The town was founded by Mormon pioneers in 1877. If you leave I-10 and head to Tombstone on State Route 80 you will pass through it. I seem to recall from almost 40 years ago when I was stationed at Fort Huachuca nearby that it was a somewhat picturesque town.

Prosperous part of town

Notice the utility poles suggesting the owner might have a phone and electricity. Plus, he's got his pasture fenced in, so it's not just yucca and rattlesnakes.
