Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"

Where is Phoenix?
On Sunday I took a drive about 40 miles (64 km) west of Phoenix to the White Tank Mountains Regional Park. It is a fairly new park with its visitor’s center still under construction. I took this photo from the top of one of the drives hoping that the haze over the city wouldn’t obscure the Phoenix skyline. That was asking too much. You can just barely make out the downtown Phoenix skyline on the very right of the horizon. That large white building on the center horizon is the University of Phoenix Stadium, the home of the Arizona Cardinals Football team.
The small photo is of one of the picnic areas at the park. For all of you people who live in climates where there is a lot of green, this must look a bit rugged.
