I was still in Tucson, Arizona for a trade show, and though it was the end of the day I wanted to take a quick hike before sunset. There is a small mountain called Sentinel Peak right outside of downtown Tucson, with sweeping views of the entire city of Tucson. There is a also a road up the mountain, but I found a parking area on the bottom of the mountain with a trail that climbs up.

I climbed up the trail towards Tumamoc Hill, and then turned back down to Sentinel Peak towards the road. As it was getting dark and late, I opted to head back down the road instead of up the view at Sentinel Peak. I only had my phone camera with me, and unfortunately my SD card on the phone got corrupted and I lost all the pictures from this hike.
