Our Boy took his first hike!
We met his Mama's BFF (Best Friend Forever) from Papua, Indonesia days and hiked in Thunderbird Park in northern Phoenix.
He enjoyed looking around the park at all the wildlife, birds and desert flora. We saw quail, ground squirrels, rabbits and more!
The Palo Verde tree, the state tree of Arizona, photosynthesises through its bark.
Thunderbird Park has numerous hiking and running trails switchbacking up and down the hills, but we decided to stay on the paved roads since The Boy wanted to view the park from the comfort of his stroller.
From the tops of the hills, we looked down over western Phoenix to the White Tank Mountains in the far distance.
