Sunset at Squaw Peak

Here is a terrific sunset, taken from the road leading into the Park & Recreation Area for Squaw Peak (or more accurately Piestewa Peak – the name changed officially in 2003 to honor the memory of Lori Piestewa, but those who have lived in Phoenix for a long time tend to have difficulty adapting to the change..)










 
 

One of the great things about Phoenix, and the entire Valley of the Sun, is the great hiking and recreation available without having to drive more than a few minutes. Squaw Peak is just minutes away from the Arizona Biltmore and Biltmore Fashion Park area, and Camelback Mountain actually abuts Scottsdale Fashion Square (or maybe it's the other way around!) There are hundreds of hiking trails in the mountains and desert preserves scattered across the Valley.

Your loves hiking in Phoenix Realtor,
