Chiricahua National Monument
About a half hour from Willcox, Arizona is what may be one of the country's most beautiful and largely unknown treasures, Chiricahua National Monument.
Chiricahua is known as the "Wonderland of Rocks". You might be surprised at just how remarkable rocks can be. After you enter the park, you will drive first through a valley, with rocky spires towering hundreds of feet overhead. It's tough to get a good view from the road, because of the dense tree growth.
As you continue deeper into Chiricahua, the road begins to climb. The further you go, the better the views.
Admission to Chiricahua National Monument is $5 per person, with those age 16 and under admitted free. Of course by now, you really should have purchased a $50 National Parks Pass. If you haven't, you can buy one at the entrance station. One annual pass covers everyone in the car, regardless of age.
