The light rail tracks run down the middle of Central Avenue. The mountain in the distance is part of the North Mountain Preserve, a massive City of Phoenix park, with lots of desert hiking trails.
The low white dome in the center of the photo is the Xavier Catholic Church. The low carmel colored building in front of it is Central High School. There are lots of law firms and accounting firms in the high rise office buildings that line Central Avenue.
This week we are showing photos of the Villa Balbianello at Lake Como, Italy on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
