The Old West is alive and apparent on this trip to the southeast corner of Arizona. Stop off in Tucson before heading completely south. In Tucson, experience Old Tucson Studios, a working film studio and Wild West theme park. Travel further south and visit the Chiricahua National Monument, a land of weathered rock that was formed by volcanic action more than 27 million years ago. The park also is home to wildlife typically found further south in Mexico: javelina, coatimundi, and fog-nosed and hooded skunks. End your tour by visiting Cochise Stronghold, part of the Coronado National Forest, in the Dragoon Mountains. The great Apache leader, Cochise, is buried in an unknown spot among the sprawling landscape and weatherworn rocks.
