Especially when it's HOT in Tucson! The drive to the top is not for the squeamish, but the views along the way are incredible. The road twists and turns along the way and much of time your on the edge of mountain. If you want to escape the heat of the desert, head up to Mt. Lemon for an afternoon. You can stop at many places along the way and take pictures or go for a hike. Check out the amazing rock formations or go for a picnic. Don't forget to stop and breathe in the pine trees when you reach the top! Sit for awhile, take in the ambience and cool off!
