Sure, organized sports are meant to be fun and challenging, but the scenery of a basketball court or softball dugout is anything but, well, scenic. While Sabino Canyon sees a high volume of visitors, it's reassuring to know that people actually desire to spend some time outside delving into wilderness, canyon pools and the rest of the bountiful Sonoran Desert on display. (It's a sad fact that "nature-deficit disorder" has entered our country's discourse.) Create your own itinerary for the day, and take it easy with a leisurely stroll--or ramp it up a notch and bag some miles. It doesn't matter; Sabino's there for you.
