Sabino Canyon, AZ — Work Camping

Our picnic table with the moody sky before a storm.

Our favorite work lunch picnic spot overlooking the Bear Creek and the start of 7 Falls Hike.

Another great spot is the Dam in Lower Sabino – it is beautiful this winter with all the rain and snow melt from Mt Lemmon.

Another favorite Nice (Gneiss) rock outcropping.

The first Spring flowers are this pink fairy duster.

Part of an old road to the Dam, that we have dubbed the Roman Road. We cleared the edges from growth to expose the beautiful cobblestone work.

The Roman Road before the brush was removed – barely a path through the prickly bushes.

And we finished clearing the shrubs next to this beautiful stairway as an alternate to using the Roman Road to visit the Dam.

Helping out on some brush cutting along the Phoneline Trail.

Emptying the bucket loads of prickly pear that we cleared from the Bear Creek Roadside – safety measure for the pedestrians, especially children.

The result is a much safer road to walk on.

We also cleared growth above and below this wall in a large parking area in Upper Sabino Canyon. Little did we know that the Youth Corp was going to camp here the following weekend while doing some trail rebuilding.

This crested Saguaro cactus is much visited by the visitor center, but really interesting.

Walking back to the Winnebago Travato after work before a rain storm. this is such a beautiful place to be!

More snow in the mountains was visible at sunrise.

We found an oasis in the desert (south of Sabino) at Agua Caliente Park.
