Call leader for meeting time and location.

This is a joint hike with the Sun Lakes hiking Club. This hike in the Catalina Mountains ascends from the Mt. Lemmon Highway near the site of a former Japanese internment camp. We'll cross open high desert terrain with expansive views, climb a ridge and descend into a shaded pinon/juniper woodland with a short side trip to a secret alcove and waterfall.

There is an optional linner stop at Bud's favorite Mexican restaurant, Nana's Kitchen, in Marana.
