Gila Cliff Dwellings and City of Rocks Featured in the Guardian

Gila Cliff Dwellings In a recent article in the Guardian’s Travel section, two of our iconic local destinations, the Gila Cliff Dwellings and the City of Rocks, are featured:

The Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument

“The Gila wilderness, in south-west New Mexico, is one of the wildest corners of the state. Here, Mexican grey wolves still roam and hidden hot springs bubble along the wild and scenic Gila river. This area may be all but uninhabited today, but 800 years ago, the Mogollon tribe made their home here in a series of interconnected cliff dwellings in what is now the Gila Cliff Dwellings national monument.”

City of Rocks State Park

“New Mexico has no shortage of interesting rock formations, and this cluster of boulders, near Silver City in the southwestern corner of the state, lives up to its odd name.”
