Spring Fever!

Comments Off on Spring Fever! Hiking and biking trails, Nearby Things To Do, Sight Seeing

We have some serious spring fever here in Scottsdale!  It’s pretty easy to understand why with the warm sun shining, the lazy breeze blowing and beautiful flowers blooming everywhere…

We played hooky recently and took a day off to visit the Desert Botanical Gardens – one of our favorite springtime destinations.  It was a perfect day!

Beautiful Morning Hike

Comments Off on Beautiful Morning Hike Hiking and biking trails, Nearby Things To Do, Sight Seeing

One of our favorite winter activities in Arizona is hiking.  Just this past weekend we enjoyed a light trek through the Phoenix Mountain Preserve.  After several days of rain last week, the air was fresh and dewy, laced with the smell of mesquite.  The plants and cacti were green and so alive.  The sky was a breathtaking, turquoise blue scattered with bright white clouds. Sunny and warm with a light, cool breeze.  We could spend every day here…

It is so easy to access nature here in Scottsdale.  Some of our favorite trails — located just minutes away from the Sunny Scottsdale Condo — include Lost Dog Wash Trail and Papago Park, and of course Camelback Mountain and Piestewa Peak for more experienced hikers.  Please ask us about hiking or mountain biking trails, we are happy to give further recommendations!
