Papago Park, Scottsdale, AZ

Sometimes I get to take a hike outside of the Kansas City area. Maybe even more than sometimes… Anyway, there is an interesting park in Scottsdale named after a Native American tribe which lived in the area. A short hiking trail leads to a hole in a rock which was considered sacred by the Papago people. I can see why. People roam all over this rock and catch a panoramic view of Phoenix not to be beaten. 20141201_163925 20141201_163915 20141201_164226

Not far away is another fun spot where the hiking gives way to eating, drinking, and dancing. 20141130_163131 Greasewood Flats will close in 2015, I hear. Too bad. It’s a fun place to stomp around and eat outdoors, even in the Wintertime.
