Well, it seems like summer is officially over. Those of us living in Arizona’s hot regions are rejoicing at the lower, double digit temperatures and that means we’ll also be engaging in more outdoor activities. Yay! We’re going to celebrate that with a list of some easy, scenic hikes in Arizona’s beautiful deserts. Check out what we have:
(Note: Even though the temperatures are lower now, please continue to exercise caution when hiking. This includes staying well-hydrated, dress appropriately for the environment, keeping an eye out for wildlife, and staying on the trail. You can find additional tips on the Arizona Hikers Guide website.)
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
