Escape the heat!

June 20th, 2017

During our hot summers it is still possible to get out and enjoy our diverse, beautiful public lands. This time of the year calls for heading up to the mountains, elevated isolated pine forested mountain ranges with an average of 20 to 25° cooler every single day! This picture was taken just the other day on Mount Lemmon. This haven of cooler weather is just a short drive from Tucson and rises 9,100 feet above sea level!

Call Southwest Trekking the professional hiking and mountain biking guide service. We will ensure your safety and make certain you get the most out of your outdoor activity during the hotter months.

We offer customized guided outdoor adventures with transportation and equipment always included.

Treat yourself to some outdoor education and beauty, with the peace of mind of knowing you will get the best experience possible!

Cicada (Cacama dissimilis Distant)

June 17th, 2017

Meet the Sonoran Desert Cicada commonly referred to as the Cactus Dodger.

There are many species of Cicada throughout the United States but none are like the Cactus Dodger. These common creatures are certainly not common. They have evolved to survive the intense heat of our summer months by incorporating a cooling mechanism similar to our own, they sweat!!!!

Whether you are visiting for business or pleasure, individually or large groups our Professional Guides would love to add to your experience

Book your adventure with us any time of the year, the Green Desert offers a wealth of diversity in every season.

Night Blooming Cereus (Epiphyllum oxypetalum)

June 16th, 2017

Night Blooming Cereus (Epiphyllum oxypetalum)
Pure white flowers, the size of a dinner plate, open as soon as the sun goes down and stay open all night, then close in the morning. This wondrous sight is also a heady experience because of the intoxicating fragrance. It blooms in waves during the summer months, with sometimes as many as 15 flowers open at once. Nature’s ability to manifest such a magnificent creation leaves us in awe of this wonderful epiphyllum. As for all members of the Orchid Cactus family, a period of dryness and cool nighttime temperatures in the winter ensures summer bloom.

The Sonoran Desert is still very much alive, even in the heat of the summer.

We can and will take you into it, just not in the middle of the day.

Weird I know.

Join us for a, very early, morning hike or guided mountain bike.

Or maybe a night hike.  Imagine that.

A night mountain bike, guided?

Greeting a new day with appreciation

Starting the new day with a beautiful hike surrounded by the majestic Saguaros, fruit kabob refreshments, followed with a morning meditation of appreciation?! That’s living!

Time to slow down and decompress. Put the gadgets of distractions away and book your tour back into nature.
