Pretty

Beyond the populated city awaits some of the prettiest views.

The monsoon rains make the whole desert pop with color. Pictured above you have the iconic Saguaro, Teddy Bear Cholla, Palo Verde Trees, Ocotillo, and flora that only reveals its beauty after a few storms.

The rain cools down the hot summer giving a nice break for some outdoor fun with a relaxing nature hike or for more of a workout a bike ride, that will surely get your body moving

Sonoran Sunrise

Friday, July 14th, 2017

The summer monsoon storms create the most breathtaking views!

The best way to experience this in it’s splendor is an early morning hike or a bike ride, mountain or road.

Summer seasons

Southern Arizona is known for its two distinctive summer seasons, dry summer and wet summer.

Wet summer begins in July when large violent storms roll in and display their impressive power with wind, lightning and rain (a bunch of rain)!!!

Truly a wonder of nature, these storms bring an explosion of life that is visible to the eye.

Ground cover and a second blooming of wildflowers blanket the desert and mountains!

Ready for Monsoons!

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

 

Just kidding there aren’t really tornados. Well maybe a couple of rare sightings here and there. The monsoon is our rainy season here in Arizona. There may not be tornados, but there will be hellacious storms going on all around while your little patch of neighborhood is sunny. Just like Mr. Theunis Wessels in the photo, you’ll be “keeping an eye on it” while doing your chores, walking your dog, hiking, or riding your bike. It really is a beautiful time of year for us here in the Sonoran desert. Sit up on a high point and watch the lightning storms electrocute the valley bellow. The afternoons in the summer finally become bearable and cool off. It really is amazing. I can’t wait!

Living Desert

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

Most people think that a desert is nothing but a dry, uninhabited area full of sand but here in the Sonoran Desert you’ll find out that it’s teaming with life.

Tucson Arizona sits in the heart of this vibrant living desert, surrounded by mountain ranges topping around 9100 feet elevation. These towering mountain ranges help bring a cooling breeze down into our valley floor thru the arroyos (dry washes) providing a haven for our desert friends from the intense heat of our summer months.

The Mule Deer (pictured above) is a common sight that is found most active in the early mornings. The one in the picture had nothing to fear as it stood to great us visitors into her home. She stood peacefully staring at us while we admired her small graceful beauty only a few feet from each other.

Come check out all the beautiful wonders the Sonoran Desert has to offer with one of the professional guides from Southwest Trekking. We love teaching visitors all about the vast diversity this living desert has to offer.

Call Southwest Trekking 520.296.9661 to book your hiking or biking tour. Whatever your pleasure, we’ll taylor your private or group tour to ensure a memorable and safe experience
