There ’s a deep mystery in southern Arizona, and if you cross the state on Interstate 10, you’ll see the signs—literally. Vivid yellow billboards asking only, “The Thing. What is it?” adorn the roadside from Tucson to New Mexico, alternating with the barrel’s end view of a gunfighter, cordially inviting you to Tombstone. You’ll find plenty of mystery in these parts, but some of the most impressive history doesn’t involve sixguns and shoot-outs. Head for the Chiricahua Mountains from the west and you can’t miss Texas Canyon, whose boulders give you a taste of the geologic dramas that have taken place here. Look to the south for the distinctive two-headed peak of Dos Cabeza Mountains.
