Mount Lemmon

We took a trip up to Mount Lemmon on St. Stephen’s Day. We went all the way up to 8000 feet so there was snow and children toboganning, and people loading up their trucks with snow to take back down to town!!!

It was very nice to get some different views so close to Tucson.

The mountain ranges separated by vast desert valleys in Southeastern Arizona are known as “sky islands” and in the next photo you can see why…

There were some beautiful rock formations piling up on the sides of the mountains. It was a truly spectacular day.
