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.

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!
