More on 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. 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. 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. 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 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. 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! Old Town in Scottsdale. The whole area is preserved like how it was back in the Cowboys time. Very nice!

Climbing on the top of the mountain looking over Phoenix city the views are incredible.#TakeHike Travel Photo I've never had good BBQ outside of Texas, KC, Memphis or South Carolina. This is pretty darn awesome BBQ!! Just had DElish lunch here after scaling Camelback Mt just down the road. Wandered outside and noticed a fab patio with little fire lamps and cozy blankies at the ready for evening bevvies at the foot of the scenic mountain. A truly delicious triple decker red celvet cake. Their Mexican food is also delicious! 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. I don't know the exact name of this cactus but quite unique, a cactus with a crown. Omni Scottsdale Resort is a magic and stunning place with delicious food you should not miss if you have a vacation in Phoenix, Arizona. #Aquatrove Travel Photos #Pattern Travel Photos Beautiful golf course Jalapeño cornbread Enjoy Phoenix's biggest attraction Camelback mountain. Everybody as you can see climb to the peak. View over nearby mountains from the main building at Sanctuary Resort and Spa. This is your view at Breakfast... Gorgeous and dramatic scenery walking the trails through the Sonoran desert just north of Scottsdale, AZ! My favorite location within the Desert Botanical Garden.
More on An antique ice cream parlor from 1958. Think most of their furniture and ornaments are still original. Such an interesting neighborhood, too. It's located in the Old Town area. Amazing dinner, a must for anyone in Scottsdale AZ. Perfect sunset views! Beautiful day enjoying the railroad park One of the best brunches of my life in Scottsdale, AZ. #foodiefinds One of my favorite places on earth. Cactus 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.

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, 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.
