Chiricahua National Monument
This traditional haunt of Cochise and his Chiricahua Apache band was declared a preserve in 1924. Known as the "Wonderland of Rocks," this territory is truly monumental, with startling rock formations, a natural bridge, and a ledge made entirely of volcanic hailstones. Wildlife viewing and nature trails abound.
Also in the park is Faraway Ranch, the 1915 home of the Erickson family. Tours of the home are available. Contact the Visitor Center for more information.
