Mount Lemmon near Tucson Arizona

April 19, 2005  •  Leave a Comment

The Santa Catalina Mountains are known as a "sky island" which is an island of mountain tops surrounded by low elevation areas.  Mount Lemmon is the highest peak in the Tucson area and there is a spectacular drive that climbs over 5000 feet from the valley to the ski lodge.  In April, it was likely in the 90s in the city and 40s of 50s at the top.  I recall a very windy pullout where my friend and I flew kites near dusk.  As night crept in, the city lights came on and provided quite a photo op.
