Mount Lemon is located in the Tucson Arizona foothills, and is a destination for rock climbers and skiers. We just drove up and looked at the views and turned around and came back. There was a little old town up there which was almost deserted looking but very friendly people there. I hear most of the town burned down recently. As many might know, wildfires are a threat in Arizona; I am not sure the town's fire was the result of a wild fire, but while stationed there, we did see a lot of the foothills on fire from our home. Just a couple miles away, fire threatened even our house... during one of these wildfires, part of Old Tucson Studios burned down. Tragic indeed. Free to visit; see site for skiing fees. Don't venture into rock climbing or anything like that unless you are accompanied by a professional; it's dangerous! Wear good hiking boots and bring lots of water and cold gear for the top of the mountain. It goes from hot to cold pretty quick; also, don't chance driving up with a small 4 cylinder run down car; it's really steep!
