Tanque Verde Falls in Tucson, Arizona Tanque Verde Falls is located east of Tucson, Arizona in an area known as Redington Pass.  Located between the Catalina Mountains and the Rincon Mountains, Redington Pass is an outdoor paradise.  It is one of the best areas around Tucson for off-roading and firearm activities.  It is also a well known hiking destination.  Keep in mind that if you expect to find water you will need to go during the rainy season or when the snow melts.  This area dries up during other times of the year.

~ Harris Hawk on Saguaro ~ "Looking for dinner" I hiked this afternoon in Reddington Pass, high in the Rincon Mountains that border the city of Tucson on the east side.  This Harris Hawk and two of her friends were looking for something to eat.  They weren't very interested in me, so long as I stayed in my Explorer, and I had the opportunity to capture this photo.

Coming back from hunting in Willcox, AZ last weekend, I drove through Redington Pass. It was the first time for me to come through this area. One of the interesting things for me about Tucson is that, as the city is abutted by mountains on two sides, some of the major roads actually become dirt trails leading up into the mountains. This is the case for Tanque Verde Road, which transforms from four lanes to being a mountain trail within a matter of miles. Redington Pass is popular with ATVs, dirt bikers and hunters, but the main road is actually in pretty good condition. If you live in Tucson and have never been out there, I highly recommend a trip. The views of the mountains are spectacular, and the pass is full of deer, javelina, coyotes and even a healthy population of mountain lions....
