"Tucson sits at the base of Mount Lemmon. It gets good snow in the winter; there's skiing up there, a couple of little chalets. So anytime in the winter, it's a great place to visit, and in the summer, it's an escape from the heat. It's kind of unbearable in the summer in the Southwest in terms of the heat for two or three months, but this is a perfect place to seek refuge from it. There are lakes, forestland, hiking, mountain climbing, rock climbing, horse trails. It's an ideal spot, and just incred-ible views. You can see down into Mexico and beyond on a clear day."
"I used to enter Sabino Canyon with beer. Now, I go in with mineral water, which is the most significant change in my life, as I get older. There's a tram that takes you like seven miles up and then, if you hike in from various points, there're waterfalls and running creek beds and rivers and an incredible amount of wildlife. The other hike is right behind the Ventana Canyon Resort. It goes way into this beautiful canyon. Once you get two, three miles in, it has one of the best vistas in Tucson."
