Cacti in the morning

Sonoran Sunshine in the Springtime


My mother lives in Phoenix, AZ, which is a amazing place to have in my back pocket when the majority of the country is draped in Winter. I’ve biked around her neighborhood quite a bit when visiting her, but she and I had never gone on a ride together until my trip to visit her for her birthday this past March.

We took a Sonoran Desert neighborhood tour, courtesy of Arizona Outback Adventures.  The tour was was an easy enough that my mom (who is somewhat new at cycling) and I were both able to complete it with no issues.  We lucked out and were the only two people on our tour.  Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and taught us a lot about the history of Scottsdale and the ecosystems of the Sonoran desert.  The desert really has a beauty that is all its own, and shouldn’t be missed, and makes for a truly delightful morning.
