Sabino Canyon Recreation Area, Tucson, Arizona
Sabino Canyon Recreation Area was highly recommended to see the landscape and desert and their shuttle would make it possible for my mother to enjoy too. It was just down the road from where we stayed in Ventana Canyon in the Santa Catalina Mountains, so we went for a mid-morning visit. I would recommend taking plenty of liquids, sunscreen, wear a hat and snacks or picnic. We rode the shuttle all the way to the last stop, and on the way back, got off half way to walk the rest of the way. We met Mom back at the visitor center after a hot walk back.
