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 Don't miss getting your picture taken with the Cowboy Sign ! Only problem is you have to time it with the cross-walk crossing light because in order to take the picture you have to stand in the street.
Not sure they really thought it through when they put it in.
#cowboy # scottsdale Brunch at Il Terrazzo Restaurant inside the Phoenician Hotel in Scottsdale Arizona. Nice view of Papago Park from the top of a small hill . Mexican Bird of Paradise flowers with bee. Shot in a small area of desert near the Courtyard Marriott. This is by far the best crepe (nutella and banana) I have ever tasted. The owners are French-guess it makes sense! Camelback Mountain. Walking around in Old Town Scottsdale, saw these beautiful clouds lit up by the setting sun. Saw this old mission in Scottsdale. Sort of reminded me of an old Ansel Adams photo. I was drawn the the big, solid colours. One of my favorite hotels, anywhere. Unfortunately it's in a rather ordinary city (Scottsdale), so typically I'm only here on short golf trips. That said, if you ever find yourself here, this place is the best. Swanky, sexy, 50's/60's, rat pack type vibe, with great, very stylish decor and great rooms. Also, one of the coolest pools around. Love the Ho!

Add some sprinkles of your choice and, voila, you got this unique, fun, and wonderful heavenly treat! I got a cookie cup with strawberry guava gelato, mango habanero sorbet (this one has a nice little kick), red velvet macaron, toasted marshmallow, and chocolate sprinkles. Delicious fried chicken and thin, crispy-edged, soft-in-the-middle waffles...SO good. Eggs looked a little overcooked and OJ was of the frozen variety, but their name isn't LoLo's Eggs and OJ. An exhibition of Chihuly Glass Sculptures throughout the botanical gardens- a must see! A Chihuly masterpiece still erected infront of desert botanical garden. Nice community fishing spot at Papago Park The Central Park of Phoenix Camelback mountain! Tough climb but worth it! Wine | Best winery location in town! Very quick and easy climb up the back of this formation to get that famous Hole-in-the-Rock photograph over Phoenix.

Utilizing the flowing water of the canal to produce power, Arizona Falls was also the site of the first hydroelectric plant in Phoenix. Originally built in 1902, the plant was rebuilt by SRP in 1911, began delivering power again in 1913 and was eventually shut down in 1950.
Arizona Falls, formed by a natural 20-foot drop along the Arizona Canal between what is now 56th and 58th streets, reopened in June 2003 as a restored hydroelectric plant and neighborhood gathering place where visitors can learn, interact and reflect.
The new Arizona Falls combines art, history and technology to generate clean electricity from the canal's waterfall.

The sauces have just the right amount of sweetness to go with the sugary donut holes.

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!
