If you visit Tucson the drive is a must. You go from cactus to what looks like Alaska. There are many hiking trails, camp sites and restaurants at the top.

A group of us did something we hadnt done in years- ride the chair lift and walk around. When its 110+, makes sense. Lots of fun and combine that w/ lunch on the mountain and you have a great day
