Temperatures continue to rise in the Valley of the Sun, but we were blessed with a high of under 80 degrees one day last week (probably the last day like that for a while)! We took full advantage of the cooler weather and decided to hike the trails around Piestewa Peak one more time before…

Martinique on Fleek

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.
