Photos of one of Phoenix's little-known gems.

Phoenix is more-or-less flat, which is why our streets can be laid out on such a regular grid. But here and there, in the middle of the urban jungle, mountains pop up, causing a break in the endless neighborhoods and shopping malls where anyone who wishes to enjoy nature, quiet, and solitude may do so. One of those mountains is located just off N 7th Street, in a local park complete with visitor center, lots of free parking, and even a gift shop and snack bar. But, of course, the real reason a person would go, would be communing with nature.
