I have lived in Tucson for almost 40 years. I have always heard that Tanque Verde Falls were beautiful, but never took the time to see for myself. The pictures I have seen do not do it justice. My teenage son goes there frequently to cliff jump into some of the swollen pools, but I went for the beauty. you definitely need to be careful in the upper falls area, and I can see why so many people have fallen to injury or death there. in the future, I am certainly going to explore this area more, but I am going to wear better shoes.
