|A courtyard at the Heard Museum|
The Phoenix area includes a number of places I could return to again and again, such as the Apache Trail, the Desert Botanical Gardens, the Boyce-Thompson Arboretum, the Heard Museum, Taliesin West, the Phoenix Art Museum, and more. Of course, the area is also laced with trails that are ideal for hiking on cooler days.
There are a few things I haven’t gotten to (preseason baseball and a myriad of hikes among them) and I’m sure there are things I haven’t discovered yet. Among recent discoveries still awaiting a visit are the Museum of Musical Instruments (which received unsolicited rave reviews from about every third person I ran into in Phoenix) and Saint Anthony’s Greek Orthodox Monastery (which we unsuccessfully tried to find this winter, but didn’t have an adequate map).
