Mazatzal Mts., Arizona
including Four Peaks
The rugged Mazatzal Mts. remain surprisingly wild considering their
proximity to the Phoenix-metro area. The best-known part of the Mazatzals
are the iconic Four Peaks, which rise high enough above the surrounding
desert that they can be seen from Phoenix. Most of these photos were taken
atop Four Peaks or in the desert foothils beneath the peaks. Other pictures,
however, were captured in other beautifully undeveloped parts of the Mazatzals.
