ERIC BERGESON: The Country Scribe — Sabino Canyon

Sabino Canyon, located north of Tucson, Ariz., in the Santa Catalina Mountains, is a favorite walking, hiking and riding recreation area for residents and visitors to southern Arizona. Just minutes away from the desert, the canyon features large waterfalls along Sabino Creek with minor bridges constructed over them. Wildlife also is abundant in the canyon, including deer, javelina, skunks, tortoises, rattlesnakes and mountain lions. Stonework on the 3.70-mile trail through the canyon was done by Civilian Conservation Corps workers during the 1930s. Eric Bergeson recently hiked the canyon, and here is what he saw.
