The "High Desert", 3600', affords a plethora of flora and fauna unlike the barren lowlands of Phoenix and Tucson. Right out my back door one can walk, run, hike, birdwatch, mountain/road bike. Desert flowers take their turn blooming year round. Popular here is bicycling; bicycle rental service delivers to the house. There are paths everywhere, many of which start right from my house. The topography here is relatively flat and more challenging routes exist as well (Bike map available). Tucson is 40 minutes away by auto. The Arizona/Sonora Desert Museum displays all local insects-to-snakes-to-mountain lions, and every cactus imaginable. Downtown Tucson has recently taken off with it's progressive and native food lively restaurants and our historical Hotel Congress. "Second Saturdays" downtown is a free outdoor event with live music and street-fun. An hour and a half away is Kartchner Caverns State Park. This should be the 8th "'Wonder of the World", a living cave 200,000 years old. (limited entrance and ticket should be purchased in advance). Mexico is 22 miles south of Tubac featuring well tended Historical Society Museum in Nogales. On both sides of the Nogales Border REAL Mexican restaurants are abundant. The best ones are inexpensive "Mom and Pop" small eateries. Nogales is an extremely safe border to cross for food and shopping. One block from the border into Mexico is the infamous La Roca Restaurant. The ambience, the service and the food are unparalleled and it is one of my favorite restaurants in the WORLD. There is a Bird Sanctuary in Patagonia, 20 miles from Tubac. There have been birds spotted in Patagonia that have never been seen anywhere else in the world. This area is a popular destination for birders from all over the world, as birds fly south for the winter and them head back through our mountains in the Spring.
