Hiking Mt Lemmon and Sabino Canyon: A Photographer's Perspective

June 28, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

I've always loved hiking in Tucson, Arizona. The Sonoran Desert is home to some of the most beautiful hiking trails in the world.

Two of my favorite hiking destinations in Tucson are Mt Lemmon and Sabino Canyon. Mt Lemmon is the highest peak in the Santa Catalina Mountains, and it offers stunning views of the desert below. Sabino Canyon is a lush oasis in the desert, and it's home to a variety of plants and animals.

I've taken some great photos while hiking in these two areas. Here are some of my favorites:


I'm so grateful for the opportunity to have hiked in these two amazing places. The scenery is breathtaking. If you're ever in Tucson, I highly recommend hiking Mt Lemmon and Sabino Canyon. You won't be disappointed!

Tips for Taking Great Hiking Photos

Here are a few tips for taking great hiking photos:

  • Be prepared for the elements. The weather in the desert can change quickly, so it's important to be prepared for both sun and rain. Bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and a rain jacket.

  • Pay attention to the light. The best time to hike for photography is early in the morning or late in the evening. The light is soft and diffused at these times, which creates beautiful photos.

  • Experiment with different compositions. Don't be afraid to experiment with different compositions. Try shooting from different angles and perspectives to find the best shot.

  • Be patient. Sometimes the best photos take time. Be patient and wait for the right moment to capture the perfect shot.
