Tucson AZ, Sabino Canyon Recreation Area

Sabino Canyon Recreation Area, located only 30 minutes from downtown Tucson was our next adventure to explore on Wed, Nov 20th. Sabino Canyon is Tucson’s own Grand Canyon at the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains. We took the tram, 3.8 miles to Upper Sabino Canyon, and from there we hiked up a switched back trail with great views of the canyon. The main road up the canyon crosses Sabino Creek over 9 stone bridges, however the creek was not flowing now and the bridges were dry. We saw lots of the tall Saguaro cacti including many armless. We hiked for 1.7 miles on the canyon trails and came back to the road and continued down the road until we reached the Visitor Center. We returned to Lazydays and enjoyed a cookout with friends in the campground.
