Isn’t it great when your expectations are widely exceeded? Chiricahua is not only a magnificent show of nature’s patient work, but also a place to get in contact with what is truly important in life: one self in front of these wonders.

The beauty of this place is hard to describe. It is an ancient lava flow, where lighter material eroded away from the cooled columns and left standing rock giants. Just breathtaking! There was no admission fee so the price was definitely right, and the park...More
