CORONADO NATIONAL FOREST
1,780,196 acres. Consisting of a number of separate tracts in southeast Arizona, this scenic National Forest includes twelve mountain ranges. The highest peak is 10,717-foot Mount Graham, with many other mountains over 9,000 feet.
Terrain here is often rugged, with canyons and cliffs, rocky outcroppings and pinnacles. Coronado also has some lakes, streams, and forests of spruce, pine, and fir. Among the wildlife are deer, pronghorn, black bear, bighorn sheep, mountain lion, and bobcat.
There are eight designated wilderness areas: the 87,700-acre Chiricahua Wilderness, the 76,000-acre Galiuro Wilderness, the 57,000-acre Pusch Ridge Wilderness, the 38,600-acre Rincon Mountain Wilderness, the 26,780-acre Santa Teresa Wilderness, the 25,200-acre Mount Wrightson Wilderness, the 20,000-acre Miller Peak Wilderness, and the 7,400-acre Pajarita Wilderness.
Activities: Backpacking and hiking are available on over 900 miles of trails, including a section of the new Arizona Trail (see entry page 94). Difficulty varies from easy to strenuous.
Horses are allowed on most trails. Technical climbing is possible in the mountains here. Fishing is available along streams and lakes, and hunting is permitted in season.
Camping Regulations: Camping is allowed throughout the National Forest, as are campfires, except near public recreation areas or where otherwise prohibited. No permits are necessary.

Rhode Island’s repeated issuance of paper money in the first half of the eighteenth century brings the colony into conflict with the Board of Trade in London and merchants in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Still, the abundance of currency helps to finance public works projects, including new facilities for Rhode Island’s government and military. 1719 Rhode Island publishes a compilation of its laws, with an eye toward centralizing authority over land sales and bringing Rhode Island’s laws into compliance with the charter and English law. 1739 The War of Jenkins’ Ear breaks out between Spain and Great Britain. As in previous colonial wars, Newport’s privateering and commercial enterprises benefit from the conflict and do especially brisk business with non-British ports in the Caribbean.
