The red butte was created 6 to 15 million years ago and naturally formed with a series of openings caused by erosion. The openings and Night bike ride 🚴🏽👊🏽 The stars were out in Phoenix last night!
Close to Tempe, this hike takes ~10 minutes and provides some beautiful views. And for the first time, I got to experience this place at night. It was a perfect way to spend an evening.
#LoveMyTown Coming right at you!
There is a wonderful Spad biplane in the Phoenix Airport dedicated to Frank Luke Jr.; an amazing WWI pilot who was awarded , posthumously, the Congressional Medal of Honor. Read his profile (Google and/or Wiki) and you will find a fascinating story.

The sauces have just the right amount of sweetness to go with the sugary donut holes. Savannah exhibit at Phoenix Zoo. This cactus is called, somewhat appropriately, The beautiful Arizona sunset from my office - great place to live Born in 1941 in Tacoma, Washington, Dale Chihuly was introduced to glass while studying interior design at the University of Washington. After graduating in 1965, Chihuly enrolled in the first glass program in the country, at the University of Wisconsin. He continued his studies at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), where he later established the glass program and taught for more than a decade. On a Fulbright he went to work in Venice where he observed a team approach to glass blowing which he employs today. #roadtrip Very cool place! #animals For those of you who love botanical gardens, definitely check out on your next visit to a Phoenix.
