I haven’t been back here in almost 14 years and before that probably since I was 5.
Chiricahua, the land of balancing rocks -- what an awesome monument! Southeastern Arizona doesn’t typically get much attention, in fact, most people think its just desert and sand, but Chiricahua is definitely worth a visit.
A free shuttle drops you off at the top of the trailhead and you can do a 7.3 mile hike down thru the Heart of Rocks, loop back to the visitor center, and campground.
The weather was perfect while we were there too and almost had the entire campground to ourselves.
