Pretty

Friday, July 21st, 2017

Beyond the populated city awaits some of the prettiest views.

The monsoon rains make the whole desert pop with color. Pictured above you have the iconic Saguaro, Teddy Bear Cholla, Palo Verde Trees, Ocotillo, and flora that only reveals its beauty after a few storms.

The rain cools down the hot summer giving a nice break for some outdoor fun with a relaxing nature hike or for more of a workout a bike ride, that will surely get your body moving
