Arizona scenery is some of the best in the American Southwest. This gallery has photos of Arizona scenics from Chiricahua National Monument, a popular tourist hiking destination. Chiracahua is about 150 miles from Tucson. It is most easily accessible on Hwy 186 about 40 miles south of I-10. Chiricahau National Monument is a scenic area full of huge rock monoliths that have eroded into precarious pinnacles. It is situated at relatively high altitudes and can be quite cold at times, unlike much of Arizona. This national monument has an 8-mile scenic drive and 17 miles of interesting hiking trails. For more information, see the National Park Service website at Chiricahua National Monument.
