Best Retreat From Urban Anxiety

Mount Lemmon

City life can be stressful and chaotic. So when locals want to try Touching the Void in their lives, they don't have to go mountain climbing in the literal sense. They can just take the quick drive up Mount Lemmon instead. Even after the fire, the mountaintop is a great place to go to listen to nothingness, to cool off, to relax. Walking through the woods or having a picnic in the great out-of-doors is the perfect way to unwind. At the same time, visitors can reflect on how change is a natural part of life, and from it can grow positives and opportunities. So don't wait for the next blue moon to experience Tucson's natural wonder; go see and feel it now.
