People around the world have heard about national parks in the United States like the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and Yosemite

Scootard brought to my attention in the comments that there are 58 in total. So I checked out what is around here in Arizona to go check out with my new Golden Eagle Passport. Plus there are 113 National Monuments. I visited Chiracahua National Monument last month down in Southeast Arizona. It was an Apache hideout back in the day. Up through a canyon to a mountaintop. Here are a couple pics from the hiking trail.

I’d never heard of it before. Arizona alone has a lot of hidden treasures to check out. Like sunset on the cliffs behind Sedona on that same weekend of wandering

  1. The last picture seems to capture the essence of AZ. Most folks think desert, but there's much more to it.
