If you live in Tucson, you know that the first half of October can be… trying, to say the least. Our lethargic bodies, limp plants, and fur-covered dogs are so desperate for fall temperatures, and yet the weather just isn’t ready to comply. Early October is the perfect time to hop in the car (or, for our cyclist friends, on the saddle) and escape to cooler temperatures just down the road. A few hours away, you’ll find banana-colored leaves on autumn-induced Aspen trees, hikes that won’t make you sweat profusely, and weather cool enough to make you want a cozy sweater.
