You Would Never Guess What’s Hiding In These Arizona Mountains
Arizona is hiding some pretty cool little destinations in her beautiful landscape. From canyons sitting just beyond view to parks you’ve probably passed dozens of times before, there’s always something new to see around the state. One place we’re going to check out today is hidden well beyond the highway and a tiny town, tucked away in rugged desert mountains.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The Roy Purcell murals are located about one mile east of Chloride in the Cerbat Mountains. You can find directions to the murals on this map. Please note that a four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended to reach the destination.
