Mount Lemmon, Arizona (2010)

Talking of living in one city long enough, you forget to explore it. After three years in Arizona, Mark admits he has not toured much of the State, but would love to. So I decided I would be generous and show him around. Having spent the day before at the Indian reservation visiting the San Xavier Mission, Mount Lemmon seemed a great place for a HOT Sunday in Tucson. A visit to Summerhaven is like short trip from the desert floor to a lush, regrowing, forest. Summerhaven is a tiny little town at the top of Mt Lemmon. A great retreat for people to escape the summer desert heat. There are only a few shops and restaurants up here.

Mount Lemmon, Arizona (2010)
The foothills of the Catalina Mountains lie North of Tucson. It is an hour long journey to the top of Mount Lemmon, Arizona and the village of Summerhaven, Arizona. It is summer now so the temperatures are not as conducive, nonetheless a better option than Tucson. If you plan to traveling up the mountain in the morning, keep in mind it will be cooler when you get to the top at Summerhaven or the Ski Lift. From June through October you do not need to bring a sweater with you if you are spending just the day, in fact we found it a lot warmer at the end of May. After the rains however, the fresh mountain air would be something to enjoy. We did a bit of hiking in Summerhaven before deciding to return home. This summer, Music on the Mountain concerts are every Sunday through September 5th. The music event is held under a large tent at 12901 N. Sabin Canyon Parkway in Summerhaven.
