Abundant Wildlife

Monday, September 11th, 2017

The early morning is one of the best times to get out to capture the wildlife here in the Old Pueblo.

It is common to encounter wildlife but this morning was an extra special treat! In just one hour our Southwest Trekking’s guests were treated to an abundance of wildlife.

We were blessed to come across a large Desert Tortoise (pictured above), a family of Mule Deer

A large Tarantula

A family of Javalina

And the awesome variety of green desert vegetation covering the landscape.

Join us on a hike or biking tour in the land of the Giant Saguaros and enjoy the abundance of life energies!

True Beginner Tackles Starr Pass

Saturday, March 18th, 2017


I had the pleasure of taking Dale out on a guided bike ride the other day. He is what we call a true beginner where he has never been mountain biking on a trail before. The Starr Pass/Tucson Mountain Park (TMP) area is an intermediate trail system so sometimes the start can freak a true beginner out as they are expecting nice and smooth trails. Ha not here in TMP. He is an avid surfer though which helped him with balance and it didn’t take long before he was riding even the toughest parts many beginners walk. Impressive! Great job out there, Dale! Come visit us again!
