USA Today recently listed “10 great places for city cycling”, which included Tucson. It mentioned “cactus-studded Saguaro National Park”, or the “15-mile trip, along the Rillito River, offers sweeping views of the Santa Catalina Mountains”. However, if you are up to the challenge, consider biking from Tucson to Summerhaven at Mt. Lemmon, 28 miles above Tucson.
People were out at La Encantada Shopping Center in Tucson’s Catalina Foothills tonight enjoying food and drinks. University of Arizona Head Football Coach Mike Stoops was one of them. There are several places to eat and drink, including RA Sushi, North, Armitage Wine Lounge & Café, Blanco Tacos and Tequila, Firebird’s Wood Fired Grill, Red Velvet Cupcakery, Frost, and AJ’s Fine Foods (where they have a nice fireplace outside).
We were up on Mt. Lemmon today. Seeing the small amount of snow on the ground, it reminded us that Tucson ski season is just around the corner. We had a delicious breakfast, with great service, at the Iron Door Restaurant at Mt. Lemmon Ski Valley.
Fanster reports, “Max Foster, a writer for the Payson Roundup, suggests that the decision of ASU higher-ups to abandon scenic Camp Tontozona near Payson as the Devils’ preseason training ground, is coming back to haunt the program.”
We were there, and we agree. There was history, tradition, and winning spirit at Camp Tontozona. You don’t have that in that big inflatable practice field.
