jj mentioned a hike, tacos & Dairy Queen trifecta. With a few years of horse racing knowledge this sounded like a sure bet.

Window Rock is something I've only heard about since the 90's until today. Now I get it. Better yet I'm understanding the layout of Pusch Ridge top to bottom. Felt a little warmer than average today sweating out the ascent.

I'd say this is more forgiving vs Kimball via Finger Rock Canyon. The miles rolled off with a steady 600-700 foot gain per mile as rattled off by HAZ Tracks. Very nice Tucson overviews around two miles then wham bam views up top. The window is huge and dazzling. The peak is a must. Half dozen friendly groups along the way. Tucsonians are living the dream with all the desert to heaven options bordering the city.
