Mt. Lemmon visit

We had no plans for yesterday and took it easy until after lunch. Then we decided the weather was nice, so why not drive up to Mt. Lemmon. It was only about 43 miles away, how tough could that be. A brochure we had picked up was interesting. It did not tell you how tough a drive it would be.

Turned out to be kind of tough. Lots of traffic and lots of switchbacks made for slow going, but we made it. For more information about it go to

Unlike so many mountain roads the scenic viewpoints were plentiful. Both going up and coming back down. When we got up there we discovered why so much traffic. Half the kids in Tucson were there. We met the other half coming down as we were driving up. 🤠. I was really ready for my afternoon Starbucks when we got back.

Below are images from our trip.

This one was taken about a third of the way up the mountain looking down on Tucson.

Below are two images from a couple of the viewpoints.

The final image is of our Roadtrek at Mt. Lemmon showing some snow in the background.

We hope you enjoyed a brief review of our trip up the mountain. Should you decide to make this journey allot at least five hours as many of the curves have to be taken at 30 MPH or less
