But in fact we do have a high country, and Flagstaff, Sedona, and Prescott usually get a lot of snow:
Sedona is halfway between Phoenix and Flagstaff (roughly I'm not a Cartographer people). And that means it's at a much higher elevation. Sedona is at an elevation of 4,400 feet above sea level, whereas Phoenix is a mere 1,117 feet above sea level. But what that really translates to the Phoenicians every summer is that if you vacation in the high country it is normally 15 degrees cooler!! 90-95° versus 110°... no contest.
Did you see that? Could it be? A high of 93° and a low of 68°!! You may think 90° is quite high, but its actually quite a nice temperature. Even better yet, our reception venue is in shade alllllll day, making it a good 3-5 degrees cooler still! Anyway we figured even if it is warm, every year for the rest of our lives we can take a break from the Valley heat and celebrate our anniversary in the high country.
So I guess we're not too crazy for getting married in Arizona in August! How are you beating the heat or fighting the cold for your wedding?
