Change your environment and change your perspective. Let’s venture into the desert to discover the healing power of nature. We’ll let our minds lose with wonder at the history, diversity, and vastness of the Sonoran Desert. We’ll find inspiration in the sunrise and gorgeous panoramic views of the valley. We’ll discover peace and quiet atop a magma peak. We’ll walk quietly in expectation of a magical encounter with wildlife like the Gila Monster, Coyote, or Red Tailed Hawk. If you’re ready to experience the healing power of nature, join me for an Outdoor Healing in the Sonoran Desert.
Sunrise in the Sonoran Desert
Let’s rise early to meet the sun and witness the magic of morning in the Sonoran Desert. We’ll hike two miles and gain just 70 feet of elevation to watch the sun spread its warmth over the valley. If we are observant we may spot animals and insects on the hunt for breakfast. We’ll take in the sounds of nature coming to life and watch the sun cast light across the valley.
This energizing experience will leave you renewed and ready for a beautiful day. *Multiple trail options make this experience great for all fitness levels. Disistance: 2.0 miles. Duration: 1.5 hours. 200 ft of elevation gain. Rated: Easy to Moderate. Location: South Mountain, Phoenix.
The Art of Seeing
Ditch the digital noise and escape to the natural world to practice the art of seeing. We’ll pause at 3 serene locations to take Naturalist-style field notes and observe, question, and reflect on the interconnections of the uniquely beautiful Sonoran Desert. As we hike along we’ll learn about the vegetation, geology, insects, and animals that surround us.
The gorgeous panoramic views of the valley are a bonus. If you are looking quiet moments in a serene, natural setting, join me for The Art of Seeing. Distance: 2.0 miles. Duration: 1.5 hours. 200 ft of elevation gain. Rated: Easy to Moderate. Location: South Mountain, Phoenix.
