This Saturday, 2/4, join the CESL Hiking Club and explore the Tucson Gem Show and hike to top of Tucson's historic A Mountain.
We will meet in front of CESL at 10am and then take the streetcar (1-day passes are $4.15. You can buy a ticket at the stop or beforehand with the GoTucson app.) to the Mercado San Agustin stop. From there we will walk along the massive annual Tucson Gem Show. Vendors travel world-wide to buy/sell rare gems and minerals at this famous annual event. From there, the more adventurous will hike to the top of A Mountain. We should be back to CESL no later than 2pm. There will be opportunities for food and shopping at Mercado San Agustin and along the Gem Show route.
Registration for this event is FREE, but you still need to register so we know who is coming. Just bring $4.15 for the streetcar pass or pre-load one on the app. Please wear comfortable shoes (no flip-flops) and bring water.
