Oh Mazzy. In a 48 hour window this past week I managed a few good sunrise and sunset captures from the Mazatzal Wildernesses Area just 30 minutes outside the Phoenix Valley. Many people in Phoenix are not aware of the rugged wilderness, beauty and wildlife that surrounds the area...I know I wasn't. I didn't know bald eagles soared the borders of Mesa or that minutes outside the valley, gorgeous landscapes await. My goal here is to introduce you the reader to a side of the Phoenix Valley you have yet to see, or that you simply become more aware of the possibilities in Arizona when it comes to outdoor adventures. I hope you enjoy!
