TUCSON, Ariz. - The clear skies made for a perfect day to drive up to the top of Mount Lemmon in Tucson, Arizona on the 4th of July.

In this gallery there are pictures at the start of the drive where you can see the mountain covered in cactus, but as you make your way up to 8,000 feet the vegetation changes to pine trees along with cooler temperatures (65 degrees).

At the top the town of Summerhaven was getting ready for their 4th of July parade.
