Chiricahua National Monument, Arizona
PreviousThor's Hammer, in the Heart of RocksNext

The hoodoos in Chiricahua National Monument are not very colorful - mostly dull grey, though some are enlivened by a covering of green or orange lichen, but they are numerous, varied in shape, and extensive, found across several miles of the Chiricahua Mountains in southeast Arizona. The formations arise from weathering of volcanic rock, and are part of a varied environment, at relatively high elevation (up to 7,130 feet), which is home to a great range of plants and animals. Several trails wind through the eroded rocks, best being the 9.5 mile Big Loop.
