A Work Week In Scottsdale, AZ


It goes without saying, Arizona in August is hot.  This is the second year in a row that I have attended a conference and training for my job in Scottsdale in the summertime.  It came a week before we had to pack up and move across the country, so it wasn't the best timing, but I must admit, it was a nice break from the chaos.  Arizona is beautiful, and I took a little time to take it all in.

The view from my hotel room, with Camelback Mountain in the background.

Bunnies everywhere, with little cotton tails.
I found this guy on the wall near my room.   He camouflaged so well with the wall, I wasn't sure he was an actual scorpion at first.
I don't know what these desert plants with the curly stands coming off of them are called, but I want one.
I spent some downtime here.
The cacti reminded me of little pin cushions.
Don't go!!
I found a beautiful old well in the backyard of my room.
Kinda phallic, don't ya think?
You know you want to pick this little gem up for your kids!

Hi, I'm Erin. I am living back on the east coast after 15 years out west. Currently readjusting to humidity and mosquitos. I love to take pictures and read fashion magazines.... and to talk about nothing in particular (ok, and my dogs).
