Higher up on the pass, the soaring ridges of the Santa Catalinas and the Rincons dominate the views. Closer at hand, picturesque wooden corrals and clusters of grazing cattle bear witness to the area's ranching heritage. As the road wanders across the plateau among mesquite, soaptree yuccas and barrel cactus, the layered slopes of the Galiuro Mountains and the wide flat valley of the San Pedro River emerge to the east. Tall saguaros reappear along the roadside as the road drops into the valley and continues on to the tiny ranching and farming community of Redington.
