Exploring the Grotto and Hoodoos at Arizona's Chiricahua National Monument

Wild Chiricahua's wild hoodoo rocks make a magnificent playground for a nature lover and photographer. David, Ron, Dave and I hiked the Echo Canyon-Hailstone-Ed Riggs Trail Loop through the Grotto, Wall Street, and Echo Park and found much to please and learn about. These fantastic formations are weathered rhyolite (volcanic pumice compressed into rock). Enjoy these images of this rock wonderland.

Pumice is light as a feather (not really).
