Chiricahua National Monument south east of Tucson is an imposing landscape that encompasses nearly 12,000 acres and is home to various natural and historical attractions. Staff members, visitors and others including William Ascarza say the area is worth visiting because of its many attributes. Ascarza is the author of “Chiricahua Mountains – History and Nature” which was published in 2014. The monument is described as a “Wonderland of Rocks” and includes an 8-mile scenic drive as well as historical buildings constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps and early residents.
