Tucson – April 2023 – Variety of Mt Lemmon

A beautiful Sunday was the perfect time for a ride up Mt Lemmon.

First stop was Rose Lake, a reservoir high enough in elevation (7000′) that it is in a Ponderosa Pine forest.

A view from Windy Point. Even though it is only about 1000′ in elevation lower than Rose Lake, the look is very different.

Once you drop down below 4000′ you see the Saguaro and Brittle Bushes in bloom.
