I'm not sure if this is allowed on this thread, but seemed like the best spot for it.

I'm traveling to Tucson in early october(6-8) for my gf's grandmothers 96th birthday. I am bringing a case of gear with me for that. I also wanted to see if anyone had some cool spots for me to check out maybe the one free afternoon/evening I should have. Basically looking for anything southwestern/cactus related as I get requests for that often. Im also open to points of interest between Phoenix and Tucson that aren't far off the beaten path. We're flying into Phoenix and renting a car from there.

It's been a few years since I've last visited, so unfortunately I've just been trying to scour google earth in preparation.

Thanks in advance, y'all!

For Tucson Mission San Xafier Del Bac comes in mind or the Desert Sonoran Museum located near Saguaro National Park. Each of these are great for enjoyable walk around photography.

Between Phoenix & Tucson there is Picacho Peak State Park. It's good for wide vistas or hiking trails if interested. Things could be a bit dry this time of year, but then again if you hit a Monsoon it could be very windy and wet. Monsoon season should be over by then, but things have been very late this year - to the point we are calling it a NONsoon!

This is great information. The last time I visited was 2 years ago on a tail end Moab trip. It was definitely monsoon season then. I hadn't seen such rain as I did driving through flagstaff on that one.

It’s a nonsoon so far this year. Have a gallon of water per person per day. At least.

There's two Saguaro National Parks: East and West... one on each side of Tucson. The west one is close to I-10 on the NW side of metro Tucson.

You won't see much on I-10 between PHX and Tucson on I-10. If you want to see real AZ, drive from Mesa, AZ to Superior, AZ south to Winkelman. From Winkelman either:
turn north to Globe and back to Superior and Mesa
or
head south from Winkelman to Tucson.

There's also South Mountain Park in south Phoenix and Usery Park just east of Mesa.

And now back to our regularly scheduled program. lol:

There is nothing like Sedona. It's truly unique and at times difficult to convey in a single image. So this is not one photo, but eleven stitched together.

The truth about this photo is that there was smoke in the sky from a fire in the distance. This softened the usually harsh sunlight and provided a rare coloring on the landscape.
