In 2014, I had an internship in Phoenix, Arizona. I had a lot of fun spending my weekends exploring Phoenix and it’s surrounding areas. Because I was there during the summer heat my typical weekend schedule looked like this: Saturday do a day-trip somewhere to hike and explore; Sunday wake up super early and hike locally, eat brunch at The Oink Cafe (usually chocolate chip pancakes and bacon), be lazy for a few hours, and then spend the afternoon inside at a museum. Phoenix, and Arizona in general, has a lot of great historical sites, outdoor recreation, and museums.

These were some of the highlights:
