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