Not all of Arizona is warm dry desert. Weather can vary widely, especially with elevation.
At Walnut Canyon (6690'/2039m above sea level), be prepared for snow in winter, hot sun in summer with afternoon thunderstorms, and, especially in spring, strong gusty winds on the rim and/or in the canyon. Best advice - dress in layers, because the weather can change quickly at any time of year.

The original Walnut Canyon Visitor Center was built from local stone by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1940. It's still there, as part of the expanded building in use today.
