Be sure to bring your camera as the desert offers spectacular sunsets and beautiful scenery year round.
Red Rock State Park in Sedona (110 miles) is an open-sky theatre of fabulous rock formations. Sprawled across 286 unspoiled acres, this popular park is the perfect starting point for hiking, picnicking, bird watching and photography.
Cathedral Rock in Sedona is 110 miles away and offers a great hiking trail for the adventurous. Cathedral Rock, also known as 'Lovers', was thought to be created by the Great Spirit. A couple of lovers, who always argued, were asked by Him to look around at the beautiful surroundings and count their blessings. The couple was believed to never argue thereafter and stands in perfect harmony.
Camelback Mountain draws thousands of visitors with its sheer red sandstone cliffs and its telltale hump. Hiking to the top is not for beginning hikers -- the two summit trails are strenuous climbs over sometimes-tricky trails. Some easier trails allow close-up exploration around Camelback's base.
Located 90 miles north of Phoenix, you can marvel at the 1,000 year old legacy of the Sinagua as you explore the ruins at Montezuma Castle National Monument. A paved, 1/3 mile loop trail takes you through a tranquil sycamore glade and past the ancient cliff dwellings of a people surprisingly similar to us.
Prickly Pear Cactus
Prickly pear cactus are found in all of the deserts of the American Southwest, and are abundant in the mountains around Tucson and offer a beautiful site when they flower in the spring.
