Texas Canyon

People who are driving on I-10 between Willcox and Benson in Arizona are often surprised to come across an outcrop of gigantic boulders in the area, as if dropped from the sky in an intentional manner. This geological collection is known as “Texas Canyon” (named for early settlers to the area) and is millions of years old, slowly transforming into its present state thanks to erosion from our rare rain. The area is home to the Amerind Foundation and Triangle T Guest Ranch.
