Sabino Canyon is in the Santa Catalina Mountains not far from where we are staying at Davis Monthan Air Force Base. It's an oasis with lots of water, plants, beautiful mountains and thick stands of saguaros.
Then we hit the Barrio Brewery whose website describes it as "rustic chic." That translates into a building near the railroad tracks with a rusted corrugated roof, good food, great service and really great beer.

|Another shot from the shuttle. A large earthquake centered in northern Mexico happened here in the late 1800s and sent huge boulders toward the bottom of the canyon.|
|We got off the shuttle at the top of the canyon and did a one-mile-round-trip hike to the creek where Jim and Bob peeked through some branches.|
|Suzie and Bob admiring and photographing the cacti.|
|On our way back up the one-mile-round-trip trail. There are lots of hiking trails in Sabino Canyon, plus lots of folks walk the paved canyon road.|
