We live here and never get tired of going up the mountain, especially when it's hot down below. Only takes about hour to get to top. Beautiful drive up with different change of scenery around very corner. Starts with desert at bottom and finishes with pine trees at top. Good places to eat. Try the Iron Door at Ski Valley,... 更多
I am so glad i visited Mount Lemmon. I would recommend this place as a must visit attraction in Tucson. Advisable to arrive early to get the best view of before and after sunset.
We had the most enjoyable afternoon and evening. Had cookie and ice cream at the Cookie Cabin and visited family at their campsite.
I love the trips I have taken Mt Lemmon. It's cool in summer, crisp in the fall and cold in the winter. Going up early in the morning and cooking breakfast, priceless.
Seriously! I didn't believe that a 45 minute drive from Tucson would lead us to cool mountain breezes. A must if you are in Arizona, you literally go from desert to mountainous sites. The scenic drive is so inviting. The Living Rainbow honestly was the only retail shop that had flavor in my eyes. Go inside so much to find!
Love the views & the temperature. Great way to spend the day. Beautiful hikes and trails. Good eats too at the top and in town.
when I need relief from the summer heat I always head up the mountain. It is such a mind boggling experience. At a certain point all cacti disappear and you have the conifers to enjoy. Have breakfast at the Old Sawmill restaurant and walk to the general store for a piece of fudge! Be ready to pull into the turnouts... 更多
