desert bloom

Tucson, like most cities in America's Sunbelt, has grown dramatically over the past few decades, spreading out into what was once desolate desert or irrigated farmland, and pushing nature further out in the name of progress.
Luckily, the Tucson has many developmental barriers in the way of county, state and federal lands which have alotted a significant amount of natural, open land very near to the city.

    Tucson is my favorite place in the Southwest. Beautiful landscapes and many options to hike. Well, it is one of the few places I have forgotten to put up on VT :( Take care, Christian.

    When I hear the name Tucson I first think of old cowboy movies. You have written some interesting tips. Gives me a better picture than just the old movies.

    This is one of the best pizza's I have eaten. Reminds me of Ray's pizza in Manhattan. Can't wait to eat there again.
