There are so many amazing sights and adventuring spots near Phoenix. The first thought is usually LA or Vegas, but tourists often forget Flagstaff, Tucson, and so many other places that aren’t just a cactus in the desert.
Recently, after a fun day at Mortimer Farms, Anya and I went up north almost to Jerome, to a place called Mingus Mountain. We spent the day driving up the mountain and seeing the sights. There was a small pond, campgrounds, and plenty of trails to go exploring on. I highly recommend taking a day trip to go adventuring if you’re in the area.
It was pretty cool wandering through the woods, and a great escape from the Phoenix heat! But luckily, not cold enough that we couldn’t wear booties and keep our city style with light-weight jackets. By the way- this is my all-time favorite tee shirt. It’s not too sheer, fits loosely (size up if you dry your tops), and is perfectly soft!
