Yesterday I decided to ride to Tucson, then ride up Mt Lemmon. Took me several hours to ride from Florence, then up to the top of the mountain where I sat and ate lunch, then down, stopping often to take some pics. The day, as you will see, was CLEAR, temps getting up to 75F.
Around the half-way mark the terrain changes drastically, turning into some 'hoodoos'
along w/ the nice twisty pavement. Then another view W of different terrain (BIG changes over the 8,900' of Mt Lemmon!)
This was taken of "Thimble Mt', obvious from its shape.
and here's a pic of BIG RED enjoying the weather
and then looking W
Apparently someone EITHER missed the turn, or ran a stolen van off the cliff
and here's a close-up of it.
Then I was heading N to home...!
Good ride, compassing 252 miles over about EIGHT hours!
