There's lots of places to see in the Chiricahua mountains of S.E. Arizona. Chiricahua National Monument is definitely one of them. This is called the wonderland of rocks, and you'll see why when you get here. This is a nice drive to the top of Massai Point, and the view from there is great. There are a couple other side roads that you can take to different viewpoints also. There are lots of trails you can hike along this road too. The rock formations are the highlight though. There is a nice visitor center at the bottom of the canyon, and a campground a short ways up the road too. If you are ever in this area, it's worth the drive over here to check it out, even if you don't do any hiking.
