Foto Friday

We love Arizona’s people, animals, scenery and architecture. To that end, we rounded up the best photos of Arizona we found this week. Don’t miss the caracal!

Westward Ho

Former-hotel-turned-affordable-housing, Westward Ho in downtown Phoenix just finished an $18 million renovation. It looks like it was worth every penny.

Got a chance to take a peek inside our favorite building, Westward Ho. . #WestwardHoFoSho #dtphx

Get your kicks

Route 66 winds throughout Arizona, but you definitely want to stop in Oatman to see the wild burros that roam the streets.

A bridge to beauty

The Tonto National Bridge should definitely be on your list of outdoor spots to see. Learn where it’s at and more Arizona natural wonders.

Don't usually shoot people I don't know, but i love this photo exactly how it is. Happy Easter everyone. #caveviews

Weekend feeling

No, no, no, caracal. You’re supposed to be annoyed on Monday. This is Friday. Be happy!

When it's been one of those weeks, and you're definitely ready for the weekend…

It’s not superstition; it’s a fact…

…that the Superstition Mountains are gorgeous. Discover some challenging hikes you can take in the area.

Soaring free

Half of the world’s bald eagles are in Alaska but some bald eagles do call Arizona home. Also, did you know “bald” originally meant “white,” not “without hair”?

Friday April 14, 2017: This adult Bald Eagle, banded as 28X, took to wing over me as I was waiting for the wild horses on the Salt River just before sunset tonight. It’s still a thrill to see the magnificent Bald Eagle in flight!
