My drive through Saguaro National Park on the west side of Tucson became interesting as winter rains swept across southwest Arizona. Kinney Road and Sandario Road have numerous dips where water washes across the road. Signs caution drivers not to enter the low spots when rains are heavy.
I avoided the winding road through the pass at Pictured Rocks, choosing to cross the Tucson Mountains at Rattlesnake Pass. This was the last day of art classes for me so now I head back to Michigan and snowy roads.
Tucson's wet weather brings snow to the mountains. Tonight's weather report is calling for 6-12 inches of snow on Mt. Lemmon. The skiers will be thrilled to have a white wonderland just before Christmas.
