Best Day Trip

Mount Lemmon

What better way to escape the Tucson heat than to go somewhere conducive to outdoor recreation without dying of heatstroke? And you can enjoy a forest! (No those aren't saguaros; they're called trees—T-R-E-E-S—trees.) And in the winter, you can play in the snow. Yes, that's what that cold, white stuff is—snow. Go ahead, ball it up and throw it at each other. It's not dangerous. Enjoy yourself. Snow angels are for the living.
