A hike in the Santa Catalina Mountains will a memorable journey, full of surprises. Hidden from the average tourist are tiny natural pools in the middle of the Sonoran desert. Cool down during a hike in Catalina State Park by looking for signs of water wear on the rocks and finding one of these natural pools. Tucson has many more beautiful places to be explored—more than you could imagine when flying over the city.
