Arizona Off The Beaten Path: 102 reviews and 134 photos


I knew Arizona would have deserts but I was not prepared to see such green mountains and forests. The plant life and climate would change dramatically as we drove upward into the mountains. Each time we went higher or lower by a few thousand feet in elevation the plant life would completely change. First there were deserts, then scrub, then short juniper trees, and then tall pines as we went up the mountains. In Kansas it would take hours to see changes like this. In Arizona a short drive up or down hill would see great changes. Arizona had much more diversity than I realized it would. It is a beautiful state with much to offer.
