I've seen the Monument once, about 15 Years ago when I first realized that there was a cool Mountain Range down there. I was working a Highway Job in Sunizona and when I asked people if there was anything Cool to see or do down there in my Off Time, the Monument was the first thing to come up. I took a couple of Trips out to the Chiricahuas while I was working down there. Always, right after Work, as I was staying in Willcox. I went up into the Turkey Creek Area one Day and explored a little bit. The other Day, I went to the Monument. I had enough Time to drive all the way up to Massai Point, go OMG! and then it got Dark.... :sl:

This was the Trip to really check it out...I knew I probably wouldn't get much Hiking in, but it was a great "Get Acquainted" Trip. I Camped for 2 Nights, arriving after Dark the first Night, after Birding Kansas Settlement. I spent 1 1/2 Days messing around in there. This Triplog and Photoset is just from the First Day. I did a slightly longer Hike and History Tour on the 2nd Day, so I'm going to do it separately...

It was pretty Chilly at Night and they had gotten some Snow from the Storm that hit me at Whitewater Draw....I had a thought to do Sugarloaf Mountain while I was there, but one look at the Trail, in the Shade, with all of the Recent Snow on it, was enough for me to say "next time".... :sweat: I'm just not equipped for Snow Hikes.

I drove the Road, did the Nature Trail Hike at Massai Point, checked out all of the Overlooks and TH's, and did a small Loop Hike from the Campground to the Visitor Center. Back up to Massai Point for Sunset... :D

Amazing Place and I will be back to start taking on some of those cool Hikes... :D
