    While shopping you can walk a short distance to the center (between shops and offices) to see the world's largest sundial.

    It's not only one shop, it's a collection of several shops of every kind, mainly southwestern art and decoration.

    And all nicely set in a beautiful southwestern colors painted building complex.

    What to buy: Southwestern art of all kinds:
    Navajo & Hopi art, weaving art, paintings, interior decoration, and much more.

    (I saw a beautiful table, made of saguaro skeleton, but it wasn't possible to ship it to my home town :-( ).

    Shopping hours:
    Mo-Sat: 10:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m;
    Su: noon - 5:00 p.m.

    What to pay: Depending what you buy - the "usual" things are about average.
    (but it might have changed in the 14 years that I've been there)

    Bartlett Lake & Saguaro Cactus

    North of Phoenix, around Bartlett Lake & Reservoir, you can experience Sonora Desert at it's best.
    Hiking is easy, and a wonderful mixture of all typical sonoran desert cacti and other succulents are guaranteed.
    Plus, it's not as overcrowded as other parks in the area.

    (Please see my travellouge for more pictures of the hike, I took there)
