I would say that Chiricahua National Monument is equal or superior to many of our National Parks in facilities and grandeur. Located in southeast Arizona, not far from the Mexican border, this National Monument is shockingly beautiful.

Probably tops along its features is the tremendous quantity of hoodoos and balanced rocks. Formed by a volcanic eruption 27 million years ago, the Rhyolite rocks have eroded and fissured into a “Wonderland of Rocks”.

Check out just a sampling of the gravity defying rock formations in Chiricahua National Monument. rk
