Finally, in this little known corner of the state, you can find one of its most impressive natural wonders, Kartchner Caverns.
The cave was recently discovered in 1974, and since access to it has been strictly regulated, it is considered a “living” cave. Visitors will have the chance to experience a wide variety of unique minerals and formations. Since water still drips into the cave, the calcite formations continue to grow and change. The cave is only viewable by a guided 90-minute tour, but the Discovery Center is open to the public. At the Discovery Center, there is plenty of educational information, exhibits, and a large gift shop. Close to the Caverns, there are also campgrounds, hiking trails, and shaded picnic areas that visitors can enjoy. So if a trip to Arizona is in your future, make sure to put Cochise County on your list of places to go.
