Sunset Hike on the Hugh Norris Trail, Saguaro National Park West

Red Hills Visitor Center: Saguaro National Park TMD: Mike in Tucson, AZ mortgage lenderRed Hills Visitor Center: Saguaro National Park TMD: Mike in Tucson, AZ mortgage lenderThe Hugh Norris Trail is one of the premier attractions of Saguaro National Park's Tucson Mountain District.  I didn't hike the entire trail last night; I started at 5:30 and hiked to an elevation where I could capture some of the last rays of sunlight.

The granite steps you see in the photo above were cut and places by men working for the CCC in the 1930s. 

One generation's work is a blessing to the next, and I like to think of those men who worked to cut and shape the rock beneath my feet when I'm hiking this particular trail.

The Hugh Norris Trail overlooks the Red Hills Visitor Center from the ridge in the photo on the left.  It's a magnificent view, looking down on the saguaro forest below, and it's something you might just want to add to your 'bucket list.'
