I have a bunch of friends who live in the Phoenix metropolitan area, known locally as the Valley of the Sun.
- This site in south-central Arizona is the largest metropolitan area in the American Southwest plus is made up of several cities plus towns including but not limited to Phoenix, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale, Scottsdale, Peoria, Temple, plus Surprise.
Whenever I visit the area, there is plenty to do for a fan of the outdoors. One of our neighbors in Phoenix took myself and others to the Phoenix Mountains on our first trip to The Copper state, plus I was baffled at how the city had at 1 point swallowed the small mountain range as it developed around it. It made myself and others believe about the same thing happening with the Great Pyramids of Giza in Cairo, Egypt. I live in Albuquerque plus can’t help but adore the Sandia Mountains because of the vast woodlands that can be hiked for hours on end over years of 1’s life. On top of that, I also adore cannabis in New Mexico plus most of our friends agree with me. I had a few stay at our apartment in West Mesa for a weekend plus the people I was with and I all got blasted on a jar of Girl Scout Cookies flower buds plus it was a good several-day experience. They all said they would consider living in New Mexico for the quality of the weed alone. Not to mention the un-even temperatures in Albuquerque are slightly more mild than they are in Phoenix plus the rest of the Valley of the Sun. It can get over 110 degrees in the summers in south-central Arizona.
