Dazzling desert


GUIDED photography hikes

Get snappy and trail happy as you explore the scenic Quartz Ridge Trail with our fitness expert and talented hobbyist photographer, Scott Cook, with this special trek that’s offered one Sunday a month from October through May. He’ll take you on an invigorating hike through the scenic desert landscape, on a 2.2-mile Sonoran Desert trail complete with dramatic granite boulders and iconic saguaro cacti. Enjoy a mini photography lesson, whether you’re shooting with a camera or your phone, and get tips on how to capture the landscape as well as portraits. Scott will also shoot some beautiful photos of you or your group, to take home as a keepsake. Hop in our Tesla Model X courtesy car to be whisked away to the nearby Phoenix Mountains Preserve for this creative desert adventure and admire the dramatic and ever-changing city and mountain views.
