Arizona is famous for it's sunrises and sunsets. These Scottsdale guided hiking tours will get our out into a classic Sonoran Desert setting at the pertect time to take amazing photographs. These tours will start about 2-hours prior to the sunrise or sunset so we can get to our favorite spot on top of South Mountain.
