Late April is the end of Chiricahua National Monument's busy season -- you'll find chamber of commerce weather and light crowds. This is a dry area -- the creek was dry, and while the campsites have no fire rings, campers are allowed to have a fire in the grill stands (I was put off by this, and didn't do it). It's a spectacular drive through the canyon and a lovely setting -- I highly recommend a pre-dawn walk through the woods to the Faraway Ranch, watch the sunrise on the mountains.

We loved, loved, loved Chiricahua National Monument. There’s a lovely eight mile scenic drive located within the monument and at the end of this drive (Massai Point) there's a short .5 mile self-guided interpretive walk with majestic views of the surrounding valleys, mountains, and a balanced rock. However, the highlight is a super fabulous 9+ mile hike called The Big Loop. This loop combined the following trails: Ed Riggs, Mushroom Rock, Inspiration Point, Big Balanced Rock, Heart of Rocks, Sarah Deming, Upper Rhyolite Canyon, and Echo Canyon. DO IT!
