I love Tucson, however, when you are at the trailhead at 5:30am and it is 89 degrees you know the hike up Blackett’s is going to be blistering. So why hang around in all this heat when you can escape to cooler climates, ride your bike at noon, swim in the invigorating waters of the great lakes, and snuggle in fleece in the evening with a cup of hot chocolate.
You don’t have to go far to smell the pines, sit in the warm sun, and enjoy the out of doors. A quick trip up Mt. Lemmon on your bike will land you in Summerhaven where you can relish in 70 degree temperatures at 8000 feet.
What are you waiting for?
