It is difficult to give people a long  URL, or web address, when we tell them where to find our photographs. So, we use “domain forwards” to send people to our images. For instance, it is alot easier to tell people to go to to see a photo, as opposed to The latter is too hard to remember. is easy.

VIDEO – Arizona DPS Rescue near Finger Rock Tucson, Arizona

Southern Arizona DPS Rescue near Finger Rock in the Catalalina Mountains in Tucson, Arizona. The point and zoom Canon SX-10 camera from 2 miles away makes the video a bit shaky, but you can see the helicopter hoisting a rescuer and a hiker out of the canyon. We confirmed with Pima County Sheriff’s Department Communications Office that it was rescue, and not a training exercise, and the person was safe.

This was a rescue near Finger Rock in Tucson, Arizona late afternoon/early evening.

Rescue at Finger Rock

Rescue at Finger Rock

We first saw one helicopter fly overhead, and appeared to return to Tucson after searching for a while. Shortly thereafter, two DPS Rescue helicopters returned. One flew over the Catalina Mountains between Pusch Ridge and Finger Rock, flying high and slow. The second helicopter flew slowly above Finger Rock. Shortly after that, the second helicopter descended into the canyon near the Finger Rock Trailhead entrance. We could not see it until it started to rise with what looked like a person(s) being hoisted out.

Can you imagine that ride along these cliffs at these heights? These rescue crews are amazing!

Oh, in the audio you can hear dove, sparrows, finch, cactus wren, woodpecker, high-pitched hummingbirds, and a low-pitched helicopter bird. Their sounds were the best narration.

Great job SARA – Southern Arizona Rescue Association!!!
