Mt. Lemmon could be cool escape after weeklong heat

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A week full of excessive heat could make for a busy weekend on Mt. Lemmon, according to drivers Friday afternoon.

Anthony Ingram made the trip with his family Friday. He said he's ready for the cool air, but it's not worth speeding up Catalina Highway with his family onboard.

"Take into consideration you have kids with you," he said.

Jean-Anne Freeman said she's thankful that she's never had a problem with speeders or distracted drivers during the hundreds of trips she's made over the decade.

People may not always drive the best, but the road itself is in better condition, according to Freeman.

"About 30-40 years ago, we didn't have as many guard rails," she said. "It was more hazardous back then."
