The roads we used to get from Rio Rico, Arizona to New Mexico: Interstate 19, route 982 east, route 83 north to Interstate 10 east. I could’ve posted hundreds of beautiful pictures of this area – see my post entitled, “Southern Arizona” for more.
People usually picture hot desert when thinking of southern Arizona. However, southern Arizona is more about mountains than anything else. If you’ve never visited southern Arizona don’t assume the worst, it’s a beautiful, green place of mountains, rivers, rolling hills, cattle ranching and wine country. In the 1800’s most of the towns were established as mining towns that eventually changed to ranching after the mines closed.
Southern Arizona is 5-10 degrees cooler than Tucson and Phoenix. Don’t miss out, check out Arizona’s best kept secret!
