During the last week of December while I was in Phoenix, my brother and I took a mini hike off the side of the road and walked down a rocky trail to a trio of large boulders for some photos. Even though there are a handful of housing developments scattered about, this area (about 40 minutes outside of downtown Phoenix) is still fairly wild and untouched. During our walks, it wasn’t uncommon to see coyotes and road runners. Luckily, we didn’t have any run-ins with wild animals while these photos were being taken. Still, my brother wasn’t fazed by asking me to climb up on massive rocks in 5 inch platform boots. He really didn’t care if I broke my neck as long as he got the shot he was after. That’s what siblings are for!
