Tucson to Silver City

To escape one of the wettest winters in record in Portland, Rachael and I left town in November for a short tour from Tucson to Silver City.  Neither one of us has been to southern Arizona before and weren’t sure what to expect at this time of year.  It was a great ride, and a fine time to bike down here.  We especially enjoyed climbing Mount Lemmon, which rises just north of Tucson – Rachael still talks about Mount Lemmon as possibly her favorite mountain climb ever.  Here’s the complete journal of this great ride.

Here’s the route for this tour, not including about a half-dozen day rides.
