June 2015. Ms. Karen, Ms. Rosemary, and I decided to get out of the dry heat of Tucson for a while and do a little cool summer hiking near the summit of Mt. Lemmon.The summit is over 9,000′ elevation, so while Tucsonans suffer in 107 degree heat in the valley, we, along with many others, enjoyed a pleasant 77 degrees mid-day. Should you go, be aware that parking is limited and go early.
Below, please enjoy a brief slideshow and commentary of our experience.
