How much do you know (or believe?!) about the wondrous Santa Cruz Sand Trout? This sculpture on Tanque Verde near Pima celebrates these mythical fish that can, according to the plaque, "withstand extreme heat and absence of water." Talk about fish story........!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
