Rocky’s Road: A Photographer’s View of Our Stunning Southwest
Former University of Arizona Deputy Director of Athletics Kathleen “Rocky” LaRose found a new passion when she retired — photography! Facebook posts of her treks around the Southwest inspired us to feature a sampling of her stunning images.

According to Forbes’ May 2016 issue, Tucson was the second-most Bike-Friendly City in America; and Runner’s World voted us the number 18 Best City for Running. But how can newbies find out the best trails and routes? Ask the experts!

 road races.
