A beautiful winding road extends from Tucson to Mt. Lemmon and it's a trip you cannot miss. You go from desert to mountain and pass by the charred forest rebuilding itself from the forest fires of 2004. Before long you see snow covered pines and reach the slopes of Mt. Lemmon.
Mt. Lemmon: Just a 35-mile drive from Tucson is this retreat in the pines. With an altitude of 8,250 feet, Mt. Lemmon provides winter skiing, a chance to see the leaves turn color in the fall and a way to cool off during the summer months. There are numerous gift shops and restaurants to enjoy.
