Want to experience the desert in the heart of Phoenix, then check out Papago Park. It has some of the Sonoran Deserts plants, trees, and animals. Another great thing is that it’s connected to the Phoenix Zoo and the Desert Botanical Gardens.
When it’s over 100 degrees in the Phoenix or Flagstaff area what do you do to cool off? You get in your car and drive to the Fossil Creek Wilderness Area. This swimming hole is our go to when temperatures start to rise and its time to cool off.
