Chiricahua National Monument

Love this place!  Mike and I visited Chiricahua last time we were in the area a year and a half ago,  we only had time for one hike and vowed to come back.  You will be seeing a lot more of this beautiful area!

The hike we did yesterday was low as the wind was quite cold;)  We did the canyon hike.  The awesome rock formations will wait for next week when, hopefully, the weather will be a bit more accommodating.  But this was lovely and watching the deer run around us as we hiked:

saw several woodpeckers....

see the deer in the meadow?

they wanted to check us out as much as we wanted to check them out!


  1. Hi, I'm a new reader and I love your wild life pictures. What a beautiful area you are in. I'm 63 and just bought my first motor home. My 86 year old mom will be my co-pilot and she has always wanted to see the Chiricahua Mountains and we hope to get to them very soon. And when I send your blot to her tonight she will REALLY want to go. Thank you for the great travel log.

  3. Keyna.. If you have not done it already, they offer a shuttle from the visitors center to the top and you can hike 10 miles downhill. We did it last year and it was a great hike. Hope the weather warms up enough so you can do it. Have fun! Hans

  4. Hey Hans, we checked into the shuttle but it takes you up at 8:30am! Brrrrr! We would have to get up and out by 7:30 to get there in will have to warm up quite a bit;)
