My husband and I spent a few hours in Sabino Canyon last weekend on his day off. It was really nice to get outside and enjoy the desert. We took the little tram that you can ride into the canyon and enjoyed the late evening there. This would be a great thing for people to do that don't like to hike or can't hike very far. It is almost 4 miles to the top of the tram line if you take the Sabino Canyon Trail. There are nine stops along the way and you can get off and on at any one of them. You can also take the Bear Canyon Trail. It runs all day, so my suggestion is to go early and enjoy the afternoon in the canyon. Maybe have a picnic, or just relax by the stream.
The tram is 2 cars long. You can get the schedule on-line here.
I never would have thought Arizona would look like this.
Look at all the Saguaro sticking up across the hills.
One of the many areas that would make a good spot to rest.
I am totally loving being outdoors.
We went in the evening, so we got to see a bit of the sun going down in the mountains. I love the colors during this time of day. So beautiful!
You can learn more about the canyon and the tours on their site. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Tucson, even if you don't like walking or hiking. If you like the outdoors, you will love their tours. Plus, you can pretend you went hiking. Nobody will ever know the difference.
