Tree at the top of Chiricahua National Monument’s Massai Point. As evidenced by the shape of the tree and the bare areas, there is a prevailing west wind!
Visit my series of blog posts on Chiricahua National Monument for more pictures.
I played around with editing the color saturations on both pictures.
Here are a final few pictures, mostly taken going back down Bonita Canyon Drive. Since there were so few places to pull off and take pictures, some here will have guard rails and shadows of the car as I took them from inside the car. Amazing I could hold the camera while also maintaining a death grip on the armrest!
Of course, no trip to a National Monument is complete without visiting the Gift Shop! It was a great gift shop, with many items I was sure Miss Munchkin would love, but as the budget was tight, I limited my purchases to two books and some postcards. Gifts for the munchkin will have to wait for another visit, maybe when she is along with us!
Chiricahua National Monument – This us a great little book that provides the geological history of the area and the peoples who live(d) here.
I am still reading through A History of the Southwest. It’s small but jam-packed with southwest history.
