As promised we returned to Chiricahua National Monument. When we arrived the road was still closed above the Visitor Center. However, the staff felt that they would have it open later in the morning. No promises, but . . .
Ann and Greg did not need a road. They were quickly off on a 7+ mile hike to a part of the Monument called Heart of Rocks. We, being less hike-hardy souls, were content to photograph in and around the campsite and paths that would keep us close to any news of the road opening up.
Greg and Ann promised to take lots of pictures. This time I want to put all of their photos together. Their view was quite different than the view we would see later on as we were able to drive to the end of the scenic road. Their images are more 'up close and personal' giving you a chance to go on their hike as well. And, they got images of iconic rock formations that cannot be seen from the top. Ladies first . . .
Thanks to our hikers!! The road to the top, Massai Point, opened up about 10 and we started our drive to the top. Those photos will be in the next post.
