Co budeš dělat

I will meet you at the trail head with a bottle of cold water and a smile! We will then start our hike into the Tucson Mountains, which will take us through one of the largest Saguaro forests on Earth! One of the highlights of our experience and discussion will be these amazing Saguaro Cactus (pronounced “sah-wah-roh”). These giant cacti are unique to the Sonoran Desert.

We will also discuss the various plants and animals of the Sonoran Desert as I point out the unique characteristics of each one. As the spring season approaches, we will also witness various wildflowers and cactus blooms. I find this time of year very exciting, as the desert will provide us with a different experience with each hike! I will also provide information about the general geology, history and weather of this unique desert. Expect to see some of our local birds as well as a variety of birds migrating north as Spring approaches.

We will hike out to the Bowen Homestead, also known as the Old Stone House, well hidden along the Camino de Oeste Wash. This is a wonderful opportunity to explore one of the earliest built homes in the Tucson Mountains and learn about it's history.

I have been enjoying the beauty of this very unique desert environment for over 25 years. Hiking and mountain biking are two of my favorite activities! I have worked for many years as a professional hiking and mountain bike guide at some of the finest resorts in the Tucson area and I love sharing my knowledge and experience with others. I spend many hours each week immersed in this spectacular desert landscape! I am also an Army Veteran, Registered Nurse, certified in First Aid/ CPR, with a current Fingerprint Clearance Card and will make your safety a priority.

Whether you are visiting from another state, country or the local Tucson area, I’m sure my approach to exploring the Sonoran Desert will be an enjoyable, informative, uplifting experience. Join me as we explore the beauty and diversity of this unique Sonoran Desert!

Jim is simply outstanding. We happened to be on the last tour before Airbnb cancelled them due to the coronavirus but Jim was very conscious of distancing plus hydrating and so on you need in a desert climate. He share his extensive knowledge on the terrain, geology, plants, cactus among other things. Very informative and the hike he chose was beautiful and about the right length ( 3 miles). I would suggest hiking shoes as this trail is pretty rocky though not overly strenuous as it had only small elevation changes. We will do this again next time we visit Tucson

Jim was wonderful - he explained the plants around us in a very interesting way. I was alone for the tour and since we moved quickly and I expressed that I wanted to get some exercise that day, he offered to bring me back via a more difficult hiking trail. Would definitely recommend!

I absolutely loved the gorgeous hike and the educational experience! Jim is a wonderful communicator and provides insights of desert flora and fauna that truly are intriguing! He has a gentle approach in teaching the elements of the desert, plants, flowers and history history. We journeyed to the remarkable Bowen house. I learned, I enjoyed and would definitely do this again. Oh I mustn’t forget! Jim provided water, fruit and a delicious snack bar! Such thoughtfulness is very much appreciated. His kindness and professionalism is tops!

Jim was a friendly guide who shared his knowledge of the Saguaro and other cactus varieties, including some ways they have been used by Native Americans. We hiked to the sight of an old stone house built in the 1930s in the valley. Jim told about the family who had lived there, making it even more interesting. The trail was rocky in many parts so good hiking shoes or boots are a good choice. Hiking poles would be a good option but not essential. We enjoyed this hike.
