This afternoon we took advantage of the weird weather we are having in Tucson and the family headed up to the General Hitchcock picnic area on Mount Lemmon. It’s the stop right before Windy Vista. It was a beautiful day and the pines provided just the right amount of shade. After a bite to eat we went up the Upper Green Mountain Trail. We just went up to the first vista and turned around, it ended up being about 1.5 miles round trip. One thing the area did have is a lot of trash. Water bottle caps and glass everywhere. Even down the first bit of the trail there were plastic wrappers and food bits that the birds were running off with. I wish people would keep these areas clean, we all go out to areas like this so we can experience nature and it’s sad when you see two beautiful blue birds fighting over a Cheeto. I picked up a bit of it but there was just so much everywhere, everyone needs to do their part and leave no trace.
