It was a beautiful autumn day

Standing stone people. See the chief?

Words will not suffice this sacred space

Ancients immortilized in stone ?

Across the valley is Cochise's Hideout. That's where the Apache warriors kept...

Here's the view just to the left of the last pic

Ever seen anything like that before?

Arizona sunsets are the best

Chiricahua National Park is simply one of the coolest places I've ever been. It is a National Park in Southeastern Arizona near Wilcox, AZ. The remains of Fort Apache are near here. The terrain is very rough and rugged. This is the place where Mangus Coloradas, Cochise, Geronimo and other Apache leaders would take the US Cavalry in order to lose them, then they would hurry aross the valley to the next mountain range, where they kept their families in safety.

Another interesting thing is the different ecological zones that meet here. There are short, squatty Mexican Pines on the south side of mountains and then tall Ponderosa Pines on the north. The same with all of the flora and fauna of this unique place.
