There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

-Lord Byron

a weekend drive in the Catalinas

Saturday mornings start better with a drive in the mountains. This weekend found myself in a new place to explore, the Catalina mountains of Tucson and Mount Lemmon.
As per usual, little research was done beforehand, only a map that led me to the Catalina highway. My goal was to play in Summerhaven, a small town at the end of the road filled with Swiss chalet cabins.
I assumed a gas station and grocery store would be found along the route, and that assumption got me no gas, water or hiking supplies. I ended up playing it safe and just enjoying the morning drive whilst scouting out locations for future visits.
Which actually worked out perfectly for this misdirected man.
