Mount Lemmon

Part of the Santa Catalina Mountains Mt Lemmon rises to over 9000 ft in the
Coronado National Forest north of Tucson the city

From desert to forest in 15 minutes

A journey to the summit takes visitors through several climate zones

The Un-desert…

Looking more like the Canadian Rockies than Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, rain provides moisture for mosses in a shady bush at 8000 ft.

Summer wildflowers bloom at the summit where a wildfire damaged pines years earlier


When it's 100º in the city Mt Lemmon is to perfect place for outdoor activities where the temperature is usually 20º cooler.
