Squall Peak

You’ll laugh – or choke – when we opine that summer is Phoenix’s best season. There’s the snowbird/tourist exodus, the cheap resort rates, the great sunsets, the deserted hiking/biking trails, and, not least, the weather. For nine months a year, we have none, so a rippin’ monsoon burst is as welcome as a lottery win. Those towering thunderheads are also lovely to gawk at, and you can get an eyeful during the Monsoon Sunset Walk.
