Finger rock trail has a short distance of gentle climb at the bottom and soon becomes very steep and rocky. On this trip to Tucson, my friend Murphy had knee issues, and it being our first day of hiking I was a little wimpy. We did not make it up to the top, but caught some great views in the lower area. Photos were taken with a Nikon D90, and are available in high resolution.
