North Mountain Visitor's Center




Last weekend I went to a writing workshop at the North (Phoenix) Mountain Visitor's Center.
I didn't even know this place existed. 
It is beautiful. 


The center is the beginning point for miles of desert hiking paths.

More than that it has display areas, classrooms, a gift shop, a library and so much more.


One of the displays on desert flora, fauna and friendly and not-so-friendly creatures. 

A cool horny toad bench. 


And a javalina statue for those who know to stay away from the real thing.

I wasn't dressed for even a short hike and I didn't have time to explore the center but I'm going to keep it in mind for a future visit. Especially when the grandson's come.  


Saguaro cacti and a beautiful fall day in the desert.

  2. I haven't been to that park for years and it must have been before the center as I don't remember that. Sure looks like a cool place!
