Arizona is filled with plenty of beautiful places to spend your precious vacation hours: parks, rivers, swimming holes, and camping spots. One of the most diverse, and our favorite, are the mountains where you can find rugged, arid landscapes or places with deep lakes and where the trees tower over you.
If you’re like us and want to enjoy both of these aspects in one mountain range, then you will definitely want to pay a visit to the Santa Catalina Mountains in Tucson.
