Each year, while in Tucson, we have visited Sabino Canyon in the Santa Catalina over in NE section of town. It is not a park, rather part of the Coronado National Forest. Thousands flock here each year and it gets real busy with a lot of walkers and hikers in the main part of the canyon where you can see amazing flora and sometimes fauna.

Her: "Gorgeous, simply gorgeous!"
Her: .......... you get the picture.
The destination is 7 falls at upper end of this canyon. As we approached the canyon end, we could see over to the falls area. Yikes. Must've been 75 hikers over there. Talk about a crowd. Not to worry, I say, I think they are hiking club and have been there a while which means they will depart soon.

Some people (you know who) took off their shoes and soaked.
