We were in Tucson for Labor Day weekend visiting friends so on Saturday we decided to hike Mt Kimball and Window Peak. Unfortunately we got late start and ran out of time towards the end of the day. Starting on Finger Rock Trail we headed for Mt Kimball. Everything went smoothly up to the summit but the trail was rough, steep, and slow going for us. We did enjoy the summit spending about 30 mins on top...really can't beat the views of Cathedral, Lemmon, and WOR in the heart of the Catalina's from Mt Kimball.

After leaving Kimball we continued on Finger Rock Trail towards Window Peak to the Ventana junction. This 2 mile section is very rough and faint in spots but there are some well marked and placed cairns along the way which make following the trail manageable. We finally made the junction but by this time it was almost 4pm so we decided to pass on Window Peak.

With only 2 and half hours of light left we headed down Ventana Canyon. Very lush picturesque canyon especially in the top part but again rough trail and overgrowth made our progress slow. We reached the last 1.5 miles as it was getting dark and fortunately we had a ride waiting for us at the Ventana TH. Good hike despite the rough going but we still have to come back and do Window Peak so unfinished business on these trails.
