Chiricahua National Monument is famous for its unique balanced rocks and pinnacles, but have you ever stopped at its historic Faraway Ranch? Join National Park Service ranger Suzanne Moody for a photographic trip back through time. Discover how the Neil and Emma Erickson family turned a simple 1880s homestead into a successful 20th-century guest ranch and their connections to establishing the park.
