Arizonans know how to find water - whether it's a secret spot on a river or lake, or in a public park. My favorite place to recharge my batteries is in a park nearby. I like to watch the birds, take my dog for a walk, and enjoy all the flowers! Springtime is perfect for watching migratory birds and celebrating local flora.The prickly pear cacti have beautiful flowers, the saguaros wear flower crowns, and the ironwood trees turn an amazing lavender pink.
Southwest desert hiking trail featuring common wildlife and plants. This is a local favorite - the bottom of the trail has a lot of people but as you climb higher you get the fantastic views all to yourself. It is state trust land and it is filled with creatures, if you are lucky enough to see them.
