Chiricahua National Monument

Out of boredom and the virus quarantine we decided to take a drive to the Chiricahua National Monument.The drive took us about 3 hours.Location is southwest Arizona in the Chiricahua mountains. Two ways to get there are all highways, or get off the highway, another hour of back roads until you come to the dirt road that goes over the mountain. The road consists of many narrow switch backs and stream crossings.I give it a 7 out of 10 on the pucker factor scale. The monument was established on April 18, 1924, to protect its extensive hoodoos and balancing rocks.Because of the quarantine the facilities were closed, but the loop road was open. At the end of the road was the valley with all the hoodoos and balanced rocks. Got a nice video of it.This is the type of sightseeing that Bonnie and I love. Anything that will take us off the beaten path.
