Woke up with the sunrise this morning and out of bed at 7:30. Early for us, but wanted to get on the road by 9:30. Couple coffees and 13 crackers with cheese and it was time to go. It's going to be sunny and warm today. Should be a great day for pictures.
Last night I heard a Harley come in after dark and park nearby. Later in the night, I heard coyotes in that same area howling up a storm. Well, this morning I hear the Harley start up and come out of the bushes right across from the White Lion.
Took us an hour to drive across Tucson to Mt Lemmon Hwy that goes to the top of Mt Lemmon. This mountain is north of Tucson and is the highest point at 9157 feet in the Santa Catalina Mountains. There is a ski resort at the top.
It is 27 miles to the top and it is asphalt the entire way. Anyone can drive it as long as it is open. We're on our way. There were lots of bicyclists going up and down the mountain. Don't think I'm ready for that. Also, I could see some very expensive homes on the hillside overlooking Tucson.Curving to the right just ahead to get onto the hwy. No snow problems today, but they did have snow about a week ago.
Wish I could show you what I see in pictures, but I just can't.😢
There are lots of hoodoos. Tall thin spires of rock.
We're getting higher. Guessing around 5000 feet here.
