Described as “a wonderland of balanced rocks, volcanic spires, and grotesquely eroded cliffs,” Chiricahua National Monument was established in 1924. Endlessly mysterious, this is an ever-changing landscape. One moment shadows caress the spires that rise nearly 200 feet into the air; the next, light plays hide-and-seek with chiseled rocks that stand silently shoulder to shoulder. Plan this day trip when you have lots of time and energy. This chapter from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Tucson. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping.
