Which hikes should I do?

Hi, my wife and I are planning a trip to southern AZ in December. It's a 4 night stay, 2 nights in Cochise and 2 nights in Tucson. We are definitely going to Chiricahua NM and doing the Big Loop (which should take 5+hours), and we definitely want to check out Saguaro NP during a sunset.

Everything else is up for grabs, would you recommend Wasson Peak over Sabino Canyon? Is Kartchner Caverns a must see? Anything would help, thanks.

The sunsets can be spectacular, but it depends on where you are and, if you're backed up against the Tucson Mountains, they're pretty lame. Saguaro East is not the best spot either. Gates Pass, I think, is the ideal spot. It can get pretty crowded though.

King Canyon is how most people access Wasson Peak. It's a big network of trails there, so there are a number of ways to start going up.
