Camelback Mountain



This photo shows the large portion of Camelback Mountain facing south from Mummy Mountain. You can see some of the houses in Paradise Valley.

There is more greenery in the desert than some people might realize. The Sonoran Desert has its own unique beauty.

It's funny how one grows up thinking of the desert as, well, a desert. Then you discover there is more life there than you ever could have imagined.

Is that greenery a result of watering and nurturing on the part of humans?

Your Camelback Mountain reminds me of Mount Sandia in Albuquerque. It looks spare and naked from far off, but when we got to the base of it, I was astounded at the variety of beautiful plants that were growing there. It was so gorgeous it looked like it had been landscaped, but it was God's landscaping. I was in awe and I literally was enchanted by it. You live in a strikingly beautiful and unique place. I'm so glad that you are sharing it with us!

It looks like the green and the houses are slowing creeping up the side of the mountain.

Unigue beauty is right. Just gorgeous. And to think that people live right under its shadow. NICE!!

At the base of the mountain on the far left. Is that just one house? That is about as "tucked into the hills" as you could get. Beautiful shot Julie.

I spent a few days at the Inn at Camelback Mountain once. What a gorgeous place!
