Views from Top of the Rock

Tonight's views of the Phoenix Downtown and Tempe must have been pretty exciting for many hikers. I started counting how many were visible on my photo.

Let me know what number you will come up with.

 

Here is a close-up picture. 

 

 

It was about 108°F, but somehow we get used to it and don't notice it after a while.

The climb up those rocks is pretty easy, and the path is winding and gradual. So it is attractive for many hikers to try it.

Hello Steffy - it would be easy to make fun of the 100 plus degree temperatures in Tempe, but the sight and the views you share from the top of the rock remain rather spectacular.  Continue to enjoy!

That scene in your last photo is a testament to what it must have been like to witness it in person, Steffy!  Wonderful!

Absolutely gorgeous sunset photos. My favorite, but short lived moment of the day.

108 degrees?  I feel like such a whiner!  We get cranky when it gets to 90, although the humidity makes it feel pretty nasty.  

Beautiful photo!

Hi Wayne Martin , I am glad you thought of hiking, I usually feel so good after the walk, especially if it is  asteep trail. YOu probably have some pretty picturesque hikes near water in your area.

Steffy, what beauty clouds add to a photo, and yours are stunning.   Not sure I could ever get used to 108 degrees!

Thanks very much, Joan. It doesn't feel like 108, most of the time.

Steffy Hristova - I always have been a fan of climbing every mountain. It sure beats sitting at home watching T.V. or doing nothing. It's harder for me to climb like I used to but I still love taking photographs like you! Your photographs are great! That sunset seemed to set in my soul too!

Hi Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP , I think you would love this hike, it's easy and level, if you like it that way, or it could be easy and going uphill, and winding. On the other side of the red rocks there is an amphitheatre with Phoenix as a backdrop.

Steffy Hristova - I would enjoy it, even if I was slow - I would thoroughly enjoy every breath I took! I'll bet the scenery changes daily with the weather and the colors are always vibrant.

Steffy,  Gorgeous photos!  We also have those hot, hot, temps.  Hiking can be pretty dangerous at those temps... and then there are snakes.  You are a trooper for getting out there!  Take care,  Kathy

Hi Kathy Schowe , thanks for the follow and for your comments. This is a very easy trail and very open and visible, too. You are right, we have to keep our eyes wide open and be aware of the surroundings when in Nature.
