We spent a few days in Scottsdale in May, 2011. If you ever go there, you must take a guided desert tour. The desert is an unforgiving environment and the 1/2 day tour was very hot, very interesting and very educational. I took a few pictures and put them into a video. The blue scarfs have been dipped in ice-water and help to keep you cool in the 100+F degree desert air. The fellow with the hat and six-gun on his belt was our guide.
