I was captivated with the rock formations and all the different colors!
Very interesting rocks!
Today was a wonderful step back in time. I have been to the Chiricahuas in the past, but it has to have been at least 15 years ago. I think the rock structures within the Chiricahua National Monument are awe inspiring and beautiful.
The green-yellow lichen on many rocks was striking!
Very interesting balanced rocks! It is amazing that a big gust of wind does not blow it over!
I was excited to see so many amazing rock formations!
Around every corner on the trail, there are new perspectives and new sites that seem to be even more beautiful.
I was amazed at the size of so many boulders!
These rock formations were quite unique and amazing!
These structures sort of reminded me of stacks of pancakes!
Hiking the trail was supposed to take about 2-3 hours, but it took me 4.5 hours because I kept stopping to take photos of new scenes.
This is the Echo Canyon Grotto! A unique series of arches in the rock formations.
The Echo Canyon Grotto was a unique series of arches. It was tricky to photograph because of the bright sunshine in a few spaces combined with dark shadows in most of the grotto. I combined a series of photos with different exposures using “high dynamic range.”
This seemed to be a sleepy rock formation that was resting against a close friend.
I loved all the shapes of rocks!
All these rock formations are simply glorious!
Very unique balanced shapes!
My mind was captivated with so many beautiful and amazing structures.
I thought this formation looked like a smiling person!
This formation made me think about organ pipes!
The rock formations are so unique and such a treasure!
Years ago, I remember camping in a tent with Charlene when Amy was a baby in the campground within the Chiricahua National Monument. I have many wonderful memories of this beautiful place.
What a beautiful day for a hike to such an awesome national monument!
It looks like someone simply stacked all these boulders all together!
