Free guided hike features Mt. Lemmon Fall colors

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It's that time of year when the trees give up their green in exchange for vibrant reds and yellows, and the University of Arizona Sky School on Mount Lemmon is offering a free opportunity to see the Fall colors before they fade.

You can take advantage of a free educational guided hike on the Meadow Loop Trail this Saturday October 15.

Four groups will depart the trail head at 11am, each group accompanied by a UA graduate student scientist.

Participants will be selected on a first-come-first-served basis.

Hikers should wear comfortable shoes, and bring their own food and water.

The school invites families and children of all ages, but says those under 18 years old must be supervised by an adult.

    The Fire Chief Joseph De Wolf with Sonoita-Elgin Fire District said the rain was a relief but not a reason to relax, as fire season starts to heat up in southern Arizona. He said conditions are monitored daily because they could change just as quickly.

    President Trump is working to strengthen the coal industry in the U.S. So what might that mean for Tucson Electric Power? It appears that it will mean, in the short term, nothing. No change.
