Saguaro National Park West: Monsoon Season Sunset

Sunset in Saguaro National Park West, by Mike in Tucson

Trail in Saguaro National Park West, photo by Mike in TucsonSaguaro National Park (west) is one of my favorite haunts, especially during the monsoon season at the end of the day.  Kinney Road cuts through the southern end of park from east to west.  Where it passes through Tucson Mountain Park and Saguaro National Park (west,) there are many parking areas along the roadside.  Tourist and native alike can stop and admire the spectacular landscape. 

Bring a camera! 

The saguaro forest is very dense in places, and the park has miles of trails.  King Canyon Trail is one of my favorites.  Constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's, it climbs from the trailhead on Kinney Road to connect with the Hugh Norris Trail, topping out on the summit of Wasson Peak, the highest point in the Tucson Mountains.

Petroglyphs, rock carvings by the ancient Hohokam Indians, line the canyon walls in places along the King Canyon Trail. 

Put a visit to Saguaro National Park (west) on your "must do" list!
