Hiking in Tucson: Baboquivari and Tucson Estates II Framed By Saguaros

Tucson Estates II

A view from Tucson Mountain Park

In the far distance, that shark-tooth-shaped mountain peak is Baboquivari.  It's located about 60 miles west of Tucson on the Tohono O'odham Indian Nation.

In the mid-ground of the photo is my community, Tucson Estates II.  You can see that we're surrounded on three sides by this pristine desert eco-system.  Especially now, this is wonderful hiking weather!

The antidote for snow

If the cold and damp are getting to you, you might want to consider a second home here in Arizona.  Prices are phenomonal, and rates are still very low.  Give me a call!  (520) 349-9090

Now that is a picture that a travel agency could use, Mike. Very nicely put together and makes me feel like hopping on a plane.

Good Morning Mike.

One would think that the recent rains would add much life to the high desert...

We've enjoyed the recent rains!


That's the idea!  Call before you come, and we'll go hiking.

Mike - I'm starting to like the looks of the dry desert. We've had an unusual amount of cold and snow here in Tennessee.

Mike .. No fair! We're having a blizzard here in New England and you're psoting these great pics. Making me jealous. Rick

Good shot, you are just getting better and better.  I wonder if Arizona Highways magazine would want to publish some?

Posted by Doreen McPherson, Phoenix Arizona Real Estate ~ (Homesmart ~ Scottsdale ~ Tempe) almost 10 years ago

That is a great shot.  I felt a twinge of jealousy as I'm still shaking off a bit of the chill from this morning's walk.

Beautiful Mike!   I agree with Doreen...Arizona Highways should be publishing your photos!  :)


Posted by Michael and Cheron Lange, Associate Broker, GRI (Solutions Real Estate) almost 10 years ago


Maybe one of the two of you would like to be my agent?


Come on out for a visit!


See my comment to Cheron.  Any takers?


...and there's another moving in over the New Years weekend.  :(


I read that you had a white Christmas for the first time ever.  Is that true?


Happy New Year to you and yours!


Buy a hat!  You're making me feel cold...


After you dig out from under, come on out for a visit!
