Catalina Highway Professional Review and Guide
"The Catalina Highway starts in Tucson, from East Tanque Verde Road just east of Pantano Road, and climbs about 31 miles to Mount Lemmon. There is a fee for use of this paved road, payable at the entrance station. There are several campgrounds (see above) and picnic areas, as well as scenic overlooks, along the drive. The drive is pleasant any time of year, though in winter you may encounter ice and snow on the upper portion of the road, as well as snowstorms and other winter weather."

Beautiful views from the highway and plenty of viewpoints to take pictures. Tons of bikers on the road
