Looking towards the Santa Catalina Mountains, a few days ago actually. The snow isn’t nearly as visible on the mountains today. The Santa Catalinas, including Mt. Lemmon, form the northern boundry of Tucson. In reality, fringe communities bordering Tucson have spread around their western edge and up north of the mountains. Since growth is seen as a good thing by the powers that be here, the Catalinas plus the neighboring Rincon Mts to the east, should be a mountain island in the middle of Tucson in another 20 years.
