Adventures in Phoenix



Description:

Phoenix is many things to many people: a dramatic desert ripe for exploration, a hot spot for culture, a golfer's paradise or an award-winning resort destination. From the moment visitors approach the Sonoran Desert by air, they are witness to the diversity of the landscape. Hikers, bikers and climbers in Greater Phoenix have come to the same conclusion as coyotes, roadrunners and jackrabbits: The Sonoran Desert is a great place to play. Three major mountains offer opportunities for many outdoor pursuits. Hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding on the area's numerous mountain trails provide views of the variety of flora and fauna at varying elevations.
