Best Fall Day Trip for the Family (2000)
Boyce Thompson Southwestern Arboretum
U.S. 60, three miles west of Superior
One drawback for this fall, though. As it has with much of Arizona's vegetation, this year's drought has taken its toll on the plant life in the arboretum. This autumn likely will be a replay of last year, when severe heat and dry conditions played havoc with the usual spectacular colors. Think of it as a muted palette.
