Today we took a drive up to a place called Sabino Canyon. It is just a canyon like others around here except it has abundant water (maybe because it was raining), great rock formations and allegedly extensive wildlife of which we saw none. Maybe the weather. Anyway, the canyon is quite beautiful and you can pay $6 or $8 and ride their shuttle. You can walk in w/o charge but the shuttle is a better deal. If you want to get off the shuttle anywhere to look around, you may do so and merely re-board another shuttle at your convenience. Quite a riparian area.
