Back from Hell (Phoenix)

Phoenix was everything I expected... and less. This picture pretty much sums up Phoenix in that 95% of the city looks like this.

The juxtaposition of Walgreens and mountains can be quite disconcerting.

One lesson I learned is that wherever there are large collections of palm trees, there are usually trailers nearby.

I promise to offer more of my trip over the next several days. I had a blast in Arizona, but was quite underwhelmed by Phoenix.

Having been visiting the "valley of the sun" for roughly 10 years now to see friends and family, I can firmly attest that Phoenix is an architectural minefield. Phoenix is Schaumburg on a much larger scale...with palm trees, of course. It's an insignificant city that lives in denial of its water supply’s capacity.
