There’s so much more than just desert in Arizona. Planning ahead and preparing for the state’s diverse terrain and temperatures means you’ll be able to safely experience all that Arizona has to offer.
Minimize fire impacts by using only designated fire pits and keeping your campfire small, safe and attended. Arizona’s hot, dry climate is perfect to catch a blaze, making this principle ever so important.
