Why Arizona?

The Sonoran Desert’s unique beauty spans 100,000 square miles in the U.S. and Mexico, and is the wettest, hottest, and most biodiverse desert in North America. Early spring is the time to go!

Its biodiversity includes 100 species of reptiles, 20 amphibians, over 350 types of birds, and 60 mammals, including coyotes and bobcats and roughly 2,000 species of plants. The most famous of those plants is the Saguaro Cactus. The Sonoran desert is the only natural habitat for this majestic plant.
