Into The Mild

Reading the bevy of freak-out tweets about cranes dangling, power outages, and blown-off building facades during hashtag Sandy brought us to a simple conclusion: Let’s get the eff out of cities and go all Christopher McCandless (minus that whole dying in a bus in Alaska thing). Since our mom would never allow such a thing (to this day, we fear dyeing our hair because she'd disapprove), the next best option is heading to Deer Valley Rock Art Center for a dose of remoteness and to scope out “Changing Landscapes: A Closer Look at Baby Canyon Pueblo.”

In the exhibit, panoramic photos reveal the canyon, located in the Agua Fria National Monument, and research explains the ways that its prehistoric dwellers adapted to the desert landscape and fed themselves year-round.

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Oct. 6. Continues through Sept. 1, 2012
