Last November we visited Chiricahua National Monument and the Tucson area. Loved it. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy.

Some of the unusual formation that give this place the nickname "The Wonderland of Rocks."

boulder of chrsyocolla amid cacti at ASARCO, Sahuarita, AZ. Wonderful copper mining tour here. Highly recommend it, and nice to combine with a trip to Tubac.

Nice post (But I wish your pics were larger)...
Those crested Sahuaro's are really neat looking.
The Chiricahuas are one of my favorite places to go.
