Bondurant, is that last picture frozen water?? Didn't think Phoenix was cold enough to freeze water.

It is. We had a cold spell for a few days. Water from, I think, sprinkler systems froze. All in all not a lot of ice but enough to slip on if not paying attention.

A long thought misconception of the west. I remember seeing snow in the high desert of California one winter.

Agreed. I am more intrigued by Phoenix as this thread develops.

Uh oh, I found the photo thread! They are a mixture of camera/cell phone pictures over the last year or so.

Thunderbird Park North of the 101 and 59th ave



Squaw Peak (15 minutes from downtown)



New River, about 1/2 hour North of North Phoenix. Hour + from downtown.



There are canals that run all through the city, and some have these deep washes next to them. Some washes are concrete like this, or dirt with trails and paths. I love the canals because they have bike paths! That's Squaw Peak in the distance.



The Desert Botanical Gardens (plenty more of these!)



Dust storm last year, if you look hard you can make out the giant foothill in the background.



Squaw Peak.



Tortilla flats/Canyon lake. 45 minutes East of Phoenix, past Apache Junction.



Tortilla flats



Tortilla flats/Canyon lake


Seating outside of an icecream parlor/restaurant near Camelback and 16th st.



The Renaissance Festival! A whole month in a town built just for it about 45 min out of Phoenix.









The Fair. Obviously



Tom's Thumb very Northeast Scottsdale










West Valley Glendale, a wash between the highway and suburbs. More bike paths nearby



View from South Mountain, the peak seen in the distance of the downtown shots.






"alley" ways, not sure if they have a cooler name



Took a turn off the bikepath in an urban area and found a nice dirt road!






This one I took last night! Love the sunsets here.



I'll be back with more in a few months. I'm so happy there is a photo thread for Phoenix now!
