Phoenix in October

All across the blog world, I read posts about the fall season.  Typically October brings cooler temperatures,  a time to unpack sweaters, changing colors on the leaves of the trees and crisp cool evenings.

But what happens if you live in Phoenix, Arizona?

The average temperatures for October in Phoenix are 86 for the high and 63 for the low.  According to the Arizona Republic, today's temperature should hit a HOT 96 degrees!  Can you believe that?

This is the time of year when I miss the fall season.  So, I tend to linger over photos of pumpkins and imagine taking long walks in the crisp cool air.

And then I remember that winter is coming and for Phoenix ...that's our fall season.

When the rest of the country braces for the cold, I love to go for long walks in the crisp air and hike in the mountains. 

I pull out  my copy of Backroads & Byways of Arizona by Jackie Dishner and plan a day trip.


Flagstaff is only a two hour drive from Phoenix.  With the higher altitude, the temperatures are much cooler.  And I get to see ...the fall colors.

Jackie Dishner loves Arizona!  As the author of Backroads & Byways of Arizona , she shares ways to enjoy the outdoors through adventures and day trips.   

I had the pleasure of meeting Jackie in person when she signed my copy of this book.  And let me tell you, I really like her.  We hope to get together again in the near future to go for a hike or to simply sit and chat over a cup of coffee.  She's that kind of gal!

Although Jackie never asked me to review or promote her book, I want to recommend it.  Who should buy this book?
  • If you are planning a trip to Arizona 
  • If you live in the Phoenix area and enjoy finding new places to discover 
  • If you love the outdoors and are adventuresome
  • If you live in the southwest and enjoy taking day trips or weekend excursions
You won't be disappointed!

So, what's it like in October where you live?  What kinds of activities do you enjoy this time of year? 

Blessings and love,
