Patagonia and the surrounding area is known to have one of the "best year round climates of anywhere in the world".

The Mountain Empire has six seasons: the usual winter, spring, summer and fall, each possessing a unique beauty but the sixth season is the monsoon season which is nestled in the lazy days of summer with dramatic and breathtaking effects.

Autumn is a wonderful time for hiking and biking.  The blue skies, pleasant temperatures, and rolling landscapes invite outdoor activities that need to be curtailed this time of year in cooler regions.  No gray skies or traces of snowflakes here where it's still summer in November.  Look for colorful cottonwoods along the dry streambeds and arroyos. 

A typical winter day is sunny and mild. The sky is a clear and vivid blue.  Visitors are able to soak up plenty of solar energy as they enjoy the beautiful outdoors.  The high desert grassland take on their golden color punctuated by the green of Emory oaks.  Winter rains are essential for the wild flowers to bloom in the spring.  Although these storm can bring cooler weather and even an occasional snow flurry, they do not last long, and leave the surrounding mountain ranges snow-capped and picturesque.

Spring comes with white blossoms tinged with pink on the apple trees and the vivid pink of the peach trees. A magnificant spring wildflower display will now burst forth.  Arizona and Mexican poppies grace road and hillsides along with lupine,aster, mallow, phacelia and primrose.  Nearly any drive provides striking views of flowering landscapes framed by dramatic mountain backdrops.

Summer are filled with relaxing, lazy days that are followed by cool, delightful evenings.  Everything slows down.  These are the days to get your sightseeing done early, enjoy a leisurely lunch, and then take a nap.  You'll be lulled asleep by the gentle buzzing of the cicadas the the whispering breeze.  Summertime is when we have the greatest concerntration of birds in this internationally renowened birding area.  Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature at one of the many riparian areas.  Then get ready for the fifth season to begin...the monsoons.

The earth is rejuvenated during this time of year.  The grasslands awaken from their golden slumber and flouirsh with life.  Emerald green hillsides are dotted with fields of wildflowers and towering sunflowers line the roads.  Water washes through the once dry creek and riverbed and the Mountain Empire becomes green and lush oasis.

Roadrunner is just a short distance from year round habitat for rare and exotic birds...one of the most exciting spots for birding in the entire country. The Nature Conservancy Preserve's beautiful scenery thrives with unique riparian wildlife bred by the Sonoita Creek.  The creek is home to some of the world's best bird watching and the oldest Fremont Cottonwood tress, some 130 years old and towering more then 100 feet tall.  More then 300 bird species have been sighhted in the Preserve.  You can connect to the Arizona Trail just one block from Roadrunner or take a short walk down hill into Patagonia. 

Coronado National Forest and the surrounding areas offer year-round recreation opportunities for all energy levels.  In addition to the many hiking and biking trails, you can visit the local wineries in Sonoita and Elgin and the surrounding ghost towns.  Birdwatchers, wildlife enthusiasts, photographers, hikers and mountain climbers have hundreds of miles of national forest and wilderness trails to explore.  Visit Patagonia Lake State Park just a short drive from Patagonia where you can fish, swim or boat.  It is a great way to spend a day with your family and friends.
