Kartchner Caverns, Tombstone, and Cochise Stronghold.

Spent three days exploring Kartchner Caverns, Tombstone, and Cochise Stronghold.  Kartchner Caverns is worth a visit, but I don't have any pics because they don't allow cameras down there, but regardless, it's a cool place that was discovered by a couple Mormon kids in the 1970's on private ranch land.  They approached the rancher about their discovery, and luckily, the rancher was into conserving it, and not mining in there, so it still exists more or less as it was, save for the paved walkway through it.

We then went to Tombstone briefly, and the site of the OK Corral, but what we found there was endless trinket shops and tourist traps.

Then onto Cochise Stronghold, the mountains where the Apache hid out for years.  An absolutely beautiful place that I'd love to come back to when we have more time to spend there.
