We've been coming to Tucson for vacation for 15 years but in the winter, and, as non-skiers, we didn't bring winter clothing with us so we never made the trip. We started out early in the morning to escape the heat of mid/late September. We had no idea. The scenery and vistas as we drove up are simply stunning. Some... 更多
The Mt. Lemmon Highway offers a variety of spectacular views from many different overlooks and viewing points. There are many picnic areas, campgrounds, pull outs and different vegetation zones.
