Stonework at Chiricahua National Monument



Last Fall I had the occasion to visit the Chiricahua Mountains
 for the first time and I stopped by the Chiricahua National Monument 
and loved the stone work at the Visitors Center.



The combination of the large stones at the bottom
 in a rather free form style caught my attention.


My guess is that this was built in the 1930's.




This looks toward a more modern addition.


I think the architects did a good job of blending the old with the new.
 It is good to have a clear differentiation between the two time periods.
