Sabino Canyon Road at night is equivalent to the Sonoran Desert Museum without the barriers. Wildlife here is abundant and is worth the $5 admission fee. Unfortunately, the day that I choose to go was the day that some guy got lost, so a bunch of cops and SAR were out in full force combing the desert scaring wildlife away and crampin' my style. I'm not sure how anyone could get lost in Sabino Canyon, since it's on the city limits but whatever. I'm glad he was found and was okay, but I wish he decided to get lost somewhere else. Still, I was able to see a few things.

Anyway, I've been to Sabino Canyon 3 times, and I plan on going there as much as I can. I am going to start keeping track of all the wildlife that I encounter there, because I have nothing else better to do and somewhat it makes me feel that I actually accomplished something.

Wildlife seen on this trip:

- 6 or 7 skunks
- gila monster
- desert tortoise
- black-necked gartnersnake
- deer
- javelina
- unidentifiable snake (my guess is that it's either a ring-necked or a gartner snake)
- black widows, tarantulas and other various spiders
- long-nosed snake
- Colorado River Toads
- Red Spotted Toads
- More toads
- Road Runner

Wildlife seen on previous trips:

- tiger rattlesnakes
- black-tailed rattlesnakes
- kingsnake
- barn owl
- coyote
- ring-necked snake
- poorwills
- various common lizards that aren't worth mentioning individually.
