Eagletail Mts., Arizona
The Eagletail Mts. west of Phoenix include, among many other
things, towering Courthouse Rock, which appears in most of these
photos.
In the spring these mountains are also a great place to see
desert wildflowers including Lupins, Owl's Clover and Brittlebush.
If you're looking for beautifully wild Sonoran Desert scenery
relatively close to the Phoenix-metro area without the
crowds, the Eagletails are the place.

Additionally, the Eagletail Mts. are home to some spectacular
Native American rock art, which you can see by clicking HERE.
