AZ Republic Weather Photo 10/25/2015 Mount Lemmon


AZ Republic Weather Photo – Mount Lemmon

My “Fence Post Vista” photo was printed in yesterday’s Arizona Republic newspaper.  The image was captured from forest road 38 driving down the backside from Mount Lemmon on October 17th 2015 at 2:32 PM. Mount Lemmon is located north of Tucson. At 9,159 feet, it is the highest point in the Santa Catalina Mountains. Mount Lemmon was named for botanist Sara Plummer Lemmon, who trekked to the top of the mountain with her husband and E. O. Stratton, a local rancher, by horse and foot in 1881. It is reported that Mount Lemmon Sky Valley, on the mountain’s northeastern side, receives 200 inches (508 cm) of snow annually.
