Canaveral National Seashore

The beach here rarely has more than a half dozen people on it when we visit.

Canaveral National Seashore is located on Merritt Island, Florida. It includes the Merritt Island National Wildlife Preserve, a great place to go to see alligators, birds, turtles, snakes and armadillo, etc. When we are visiting Florida this is one of our favorite places to go.

Southern Arizona

Elephant Head Rock as seen from interstate 19, south of Green Valley

Southern Arizona is not a desert, it’s mountains and doesn’t comply with the natural rules. Rivers run south to north, the temperature gets hotter when going north and the elevation falls as well. Nogales is 5-10 degrees cooler than Tucson and Phoenix.
