We enjoyed this drive, which according to the National Forest, is biologically like driving from the deserts of Mexico to the forests of Canada. I think it reminded us both a lot of Colorado, so it was in some ways, much like other drives we've been on many times. But at least now we can say, yes, we've been to the top of Mt. Lemon!
This was taken from one of the overlooks, with the view to the west across Tucson, through what I call layers of mountains. The pointed mountain in the far background is Baboquivari, considered to be a sacred mountain by the Indians.
I took this as we approached a curve near the top of the mountain.
Here's one of the many interesting rock formations, or "hoodoos" along the way.
This picture is looking up at the road above us!
On the way down, we passed this interesting house.
Yes, we did see some snow, but I figured many of my readers have seen enough snow this year, so I spared you any more!
