In the Camelback corridor/Biltmore area lies a little mid-century gem we pass by frequently. The Martinique was built in 1960 and remains today with lots of the original detailing on the exterior and grounds.

Drawn to Dreamy Draw

We were a little late to the game discovering how amazing Piestewa Peak and the surrounding hiking trails are. Our friends, Tim and Danika, took us there in Spring of last year – the desert flowers were blossoming, the winding trails provided you with endless possibilities for exploring, and the weather was pretty fine too.…
