Regarding Honorable Frank Harris Hitchcock. The Hitchcock Highway more commonly known as Calalina Highway or Mount Lemmon Highway runs up the Santa Catalina Mountains from the east side of Tucson up to Summerhaven, at the top of Mt. Lemmon. The beautiful, curving road is a favorite drive for tourists, for locals escaping summer's heat, for motorcyclists, and cyclists, and has been recently designated as the Sky Island Parkway, part of the US National Scenic Byway System.
