Sleeping Beauty

Right in between Globe and Miami, off U.S. 60 and State Road 188 above and behind the Cobre Valle Country Club, you can see the famed mountain that resembles a giant sleeping woman. It is now the site of a large open pit turquoise mine.

El Capitan Pass

Just a few miles south of Globe on State Road 77 toward Tucson there's a spectacular view of the El Capitan Pass. Kit Carson in 1846 led Kearny's army through this difficult pass on their march to California to fight in the Mexican War.
