    Sonoran Desert National Monument

    The Sonoran Desert National Monument consists of 487,000 acres of desert wilderness in south central Arizona. There was not a separate listing for the monument so I will list ot under Gila Bend, the closest town to the part I visited. This monument is a neat place to get away from people and enjoy nature on its own terms. Lots of nice cacti, low trees and wildlife. Follow the warnings and enjoy the desert safely.
