Not quite the shot I wanted, but it is still neat to see the dawn hit this cactus. This place was shown on the Food Network View from the very top of Camelback Mountain. Really great for those who enjoy climbing. A cactus lovers paradise. There's also a great restaurant here with fresh delicious food and drink!

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! Brunch at Il Terrazzo Restaurant at the Phoenician Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona. Hole in Rock A place where families can make some of the best memories! Colors of the desert The Sonoran Desert can be desolate or it can be lush. This leans to traditional Desert Fatty Daddy's #sweetspot Cookie Cup treat is too die for! It consist of ice cream or sorbet or gelato (you pick one or two flavours out of 24 unique flavours), your choice of macaron, and topped with marshmallow toasted right in front of you with a butane torch. 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. 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.

Their Mexican food is also delicious! Blue Fiddleheads- oh my! Look at the amazing Phoenician Resort from Camelback Mountain yeah it's nice. It has it all a golf coarse, pools, restaurants. Have an amazing time! At the annual Parade Del Sol Parade in celebration of Arizona's birthday. #desertflowers The famous Camelback of Phoenix Excellent place to explore desert plants Dark mood-lit interior space opens into an equally appealing white tented outdoor patio in back. Yummy Mission marguerita adds sangria to the traditional cocktail. Food great. Grilled corn with Spanish cheese was notable as well as short rib tacos. Awe this amazing cactus!

Your destination is literally a Loved this hike! It's as hard as it's beautiful.. and so worth it! #hiking #phoenix #az Golfing at the Phoenician 11/2016 #lifeatexpedia In the late 1800s, Phoenicians enjoyed the wonders of Arizona Falls, gathering there to picnic, socialize and dance near the cool water. 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.

Surrounded by desert nature, Gertrude's #sweetspot is a perfect setting to splurge and get something sweet, and Donuts+Sauces dessert is absolutely a must try. It is made of ricotta donut holes dusted with cinnamon and raw sugar, and served with three decadent sauces: smoked hot fudge, prickly pear jelly, and salted caramel all made in-house. The sauces have just the right amount of sweetness to go with the sugary donut holes. This is inside an art piece called This cactus is called, somewhat appropriately, 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! A fun day at the park! Swimming pool perfect for a refreshing dip in the dry desert air of Sonoran Desert. Really nice family park with a carousel, a train the kids can ride, other train attractions, and plenty of space for kids to run around in.
