The gravy train is back on the tracks, the economic engine a runnin,’ and the demise of our Sonoran desert being outdone by the good weather in the “Valley on the run,” Phoenix metro.

We’ve taken a lot of tourist-town trail rides over the years, but our trip with Arizona Horseback Experience marked a significant shift from the usual push-button tour, thanks to a guide and horses that welcomed the chance to lope, rather than plod along, and scenery that made it clear we weren’t in the same-old Sonoran Desert anymore.
The ranch’s popular wine-tasting rides and three-hour rides cross onto the enormous and serene San Ignacio del Babacomari ranch, the largest contiguous private land parcel in Arizona. With hill after hill of waving grasslands, as well as riparian zones and woodlands, it’s the same range Wild West lawman Wyatt Earp rode. Full-day rides and pack trips go deep into the Coronado National Forest; in fact, you can ride from the ranch for five days in one direction before reaching a 9,000-foot elevation in the Huachuca Mountains, where you can peer down on Arizona or Mexico.

As development of the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway has inched closer to a reality over the years, the proposed Pecos Alignment of the freeway has been most hotly debated because of the impending destruction to South Mountain itself. But many in Ahwatukee Foothills — on paper a part of the City of Phoenix, but ostensibly it’s own community of nearly 80,000 residents neighboring Tempe and Chandler — are also fearful of the state removing homes, businesses and a church to build the new freeway.
Now that June is boiling up all over, as a public service this column will provide, especially to new arrivals, unsolicited advice on summer survival in the Sonoran Desert. When you’re not covering yourself in aloe vera juice to relieve a scalding sunburn, when surfaces inside your car are noticeably less than molten, when you’re watching someone else on TV being carried down from Camelback Mountain giving a thumbs-up to the camera — that’s when you’ll thank me, um, I hope.
