Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge is Arivaca, Arizona. We love this place in southern Arizona.
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.
Lake Pleasant is north of Phoenix, Arizona and it’s another one of our favorite places.
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.
The White Tank Mountains are located west of Phoenix, Arizona. There’s a county park and campground for tents and RVs. It’s one of our favorite places in Arizona.
