Camelback Corridor

Over the next few days, I’m going to show you another part of Phoenix known as the Camelback Corridor. Phoenix has three main areas where business in concentrated, the downtown, mid-town or the Central Corridor and the Camelback Corridor centered around the corner of 24th Street and Camelback Road. This photo looks east along Camelback Road. Camelback Road gets its name from the mountain that you see in the distance. If you look at it with an artistic eye, you can see that it resembles the two humps and head of a camel. In the foreground below us is the south side of the Biltmore Fashion Park shopping center, an upscale shopping complex that houses the likes of Saks Fifth Avenue, Escada, Tommy Bahama, and Ralph Lauren. To the right, on the other side of Camelback Road, are the buildings of the Esplanade Office complex.

Another view tomorrow.

This is a great view shot with a wonderful explanation. That mall looks too expensive for me! :-)

I just love that you have a great big mountain at the end of the road - how cool!
