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.
Not far away is another fun spot where the hiking gives way to eating, drinking, and dancing. 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.
