This desert refuge has sheltered people for over a thousand years.
It has been home, shrine, hideout, challenging workplace, exciting playground
and tranquil retreat.
Today the 2,000-acre (809 ha.) park is
on the National Historic Register and showcases crystal-filled Colossal
Cave and historic La Posta Quemada Ranch, a working ranch for over 120 years.
Visitors can take a cave tour, browse in the historical museum, relax in the
wooded picnic areas, hike, saddle up for a trail ride, sluice for gemstones,
enjoy a meal at fresh-air cafés and explore southwestern gift shops.
