16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sunrise at San Tan Mountain Regional Park

My friend Julie lives in Tempe and she and her friend Albert have taking to hiking. During my February 2018 visit, they dragged me out before the sun came up to go walking at San Tan Mountain Regional Park for 5.4 miles of cacti, birds and a glorious sunrise. It was chilly and we were heavily layered and carrying a camel (for water.)
