Making Lemmons into a mountain?

Mount Lemmon is one of the more popular areas around Tucson. I took a drive up there yesterday and was really amazed the change in scenery as I ascended in elevation. It goes from cactus to trees in such a short time, pretty cool stuff. The road to the top is about 27 miles and it goes from roughly 800 feet to a little more than 8000 feet in elevation. Some of the views are really amazing. There is a ski resort and a residential community at the top of the mountain too. I’ll probably make another trip up there before I leave. Enjoy the pictures!
