Considering Arizona’s vast swaths of wilderness, it should come as no surprise that our state is home to more International Dark Sky Parks than anywhere else in the world. Chiricahua National Monument has recently been added to the ranks, and the 12,000-acre desert oasis is dazzling both day and night. See for yourself:
