One day we took a short drive up to the park on South Mountain. There are a lot of picnic places there and lots of hiking trails in the desert mountain and valleys. My brother says that there are often hikers who get lost in those valleys and have to be rescued. The views were spectacular.

It’s a very winding road – many switchbacks and blind turns so be careful driving. Be sure to take water if you’re hiking and for crying out loud, wear a hat! 🙂
