Sonoita, Arizona

Sonoita is located at the crossroads of US Highways 82 and 83. We are surrounded by rolling, grass-covered hills and enjoy wonderful blue skies and wide-open spaces. Many people say this area "looks like Montana." Well, maybe. We love it here whether or not it does. We certainly have a lot less snow!

Weather in the Sonoita area is usually dry, sunny and warm. Winter temperatures average between 20-60F with occasional snow and rain. Spring is very temperate with the thermometer registering 50 - 80F. The summer-fall temperatures average between 80-95F. Our monsoon season starts in July and lasts for two to three months. Please enjoy the storm photos page.  The climate encourages outdoor activities year round.

Terrain here is rolling grasslands and cienegas. Sonoita lies in a wide valley surrounded by mountains. Oak and pine forests are found in the higher elevations. The arroyos found across the cienega may have occasional flash floods during the monsoon season.

Altitude is 4,987 feet above sea level and some folks may experience shortness of breath when exercising vigorously.

Take time out for a chuckle on the Rancher's Humor page. No Bull! (Okay, maybe a little...)
