    SAGUARO  NATIONAL  PARK

    Is the Sonoran desert area hot? YES, it is, but exclusively at daytime.

    Nighttime temperatures can drop by as much as 30 degrees (17.5 C), and high in the Rincon Mountains it is even cooler. During winter they can occasionally fall below freezing (32F = 0C) in Saguaro National Park. It snows usually once or twice a year but the snow quickly melts off. Wouldn't you like to see and take a picture of giant saguaros covered by snow?

    Fun Alternatives: Visit Saguaro National Park at daylight (haha, the park is closed at night) in April as I did :-)) and/or skip high mountains in Eastern District (Rincon Mountain Unit) in winter time.

    HAPPY  URSULA  IN  FRONT  OF  ASDM

    I was in front of Arizona Sonora Desert Museum (ASDM) at about 4:30 pm. I knew that they closed at 5:00 pm. That's right but... they finished admit visitors or better to say to sell tickets) at 4:00 pm. First I was very dissapointed about it.


    Unique Suggestions: I started to talk with a park ranger. I asked her to do us a favour and to let us enter the museum - just for quick look around. She asked where we were from. I replied... from Poland and... she let us go :-)))!
    I have no idea what can happen when you say from, say France or Germany.


    Fun Alternatives: Look at tired but... happy face of your wife/husband, friend, kids whoever accompany you and... drive to visit Tucson!

    SAGUARO  NATIONAL  PARK

    Southern Arizona and Saguaro National Park (in lower heights, up to say 5000 feet = 1524 m) are one of the hottest places in the USA in summer, or more exactly from May to October.
    In summer high temperatures are usually over 100F = 38C (sometimes even 110F = 43C), low over 70F (21C).

    Check the 10-day forecast for Tucson:
    National Weather Service


    Unique Suggestions: My top 5 advices:
    1. Wear very light (and too large :-) clothes made of natural materials (cotton) and a hat,
    2. stay in shadow if possible and move slowly hehe,
    3. drink a lot of cold water (no sweet juices or booze),
    4. avoid midday and early afternoon,
    5. keep smiling :-)))
    .

    Fun Alternatives: Visit Saguaro National Park from November to April, at least in May or October.
