Mexico - Pinacante Wilderness

Here's an unique combination: NASA and the desert. Wanna know more? If you're in the mood for barren desert, sprawling sand dunes, rocky craters, and ancient lava remains then I know a place that you may enjoy. Just south of the Arizona border and just north of Rocky Point, Mexico lies the beautiful yet other-wordly Pinacante Wilderness. This terrain is so similar to the moon that NASA sent astronauts here to train in the 1960's. Whether it's a short hike out to the largest continuous sand dunes in North America, or a drive around the rocky mountains and giant craters, Pinacante Wilderness will not fail to wow you.
