Paradise Valley and Camelback Mtn, Phoenix, Arizona

Description

If you're in the area, head south down Tatum Blvd, from about Cactus Rd. You will pass lovely neighborhoods brightened by pink and white oleander bushes, blossoming palo verde trees, and green wispy palms. You will come to a T, and then directly before your eyes is the amazing and gorgeous rust-colored rock formation, Camelback Mountain. The northwestern portion of the mountain, which you see here, is a cap of sedimentary rock. Stones and small gravel are glued together by appealing red silt stone.
While in the area, take your kids for a great play at a very special park, McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, where they can play on a huge playground with cooling misters, ride a mini-rail, go on a carousel, walk in an old railcar, and play a wild west shootout game in a miniature wild west town.
