Chiricahua National Monument, Arizona

Not to far from Fort Bowie is a scenic park called Chiricahua National Monument. Ranger John told me to go over and take a look. The place is pretty big and is sort of a cross between Zion and Bryce. It has the same red rock coloring of Zion but the hoodoos of Bryce. There are a lot of good hiking trails worth checking out. I got some mileage out of this place, but I cheated, I took the free bus uphill and worked my way downhill.

I also wore my high gaiters this time, now terrified of angry rattlers.

I love the slide show. Awesome stuff. Try not to piss off any more rattlers. The girls did Reddish Knob with us last weekend. They quit about 1.5 miles from the end and I had to carry them both. I sent you an email about my rejection from EHarmony - I thought you'd get a kick out of that. Just confirms Keith's assertion that I'm unmarriageable and no one will every want me (LOL). The weather here has been perfect since you left.
