Photo Galleries – Springtime at Briar Patch Inn

Because it is nestled inside Oak Creek Canyon, the seasons of The Briar Patch afford less extreme summers, usually 5 to 10 degrees lower than in town (just five minutes away). So, while it is not unusual for temperatures to exceed 100 degrees (Fahrenheit) in Uptown, a more comfortable, largely shaded 85 degrees is enjoyed at The Briar Patch. The proximity to Oak Creek also contributes to Briar Patch’s climate. Not only are summer months cooler, but also a bit more humid than the High Desert “dry heat” in Uptown.
