Fool Hollow State Park — Show Low, AZ

We Found a Tarantula (~ 2-3 in)

We Found a Tarantula (~ 2-3 in)

After an overnight stay at Gallup, NM, it was on to Arizona, and Jan did the driving again. God Bless her. The drive to Fool Hollow State Park in Show Low, AZ was about the same distance as yesterday.

We’re at about the same elevation as Gallup, NM (6400 feet), so the nights are cold — in the mid-20’s.

Now we get the whole temperature/elevation thing — the higher up you go, the colder it gets. Our next stop after Show Low, is Tucson, AZ which is only about 2600 feet above sea level — much lower and much warmer at night (mid-50s instead of mid-20s).

Our Winter destination, Lake Havasu City, AZ, is only 735 feet above sea level. We’ll get there November 1st.
