Wandering the White Tank Mountains

I spent a little over a week in Glendale, Arizona, and I wasn’t getting back on a plane to Dallas without seeing some desert mountains.


I was managing a conference, which meant free time came in random bouts. Some friendly employees at the Renaissance Glendale Hotel & Spa recommended White Tank Mountain Park since it’s not too far from the hotel.


It didn’t take long to see that these mountains were a nice recreation area. I passed people with everything from walking sticks to picnics. I also passed a lot of snake and mountain lion signs.


Whoops….someone wore the wrong shoes. In my defense, when I packed for this trip, I didn’t think I’d have any free time at all. Never one to let fashion stop me, I was off to explore what I could in the time I had.


When I use the term, “wandering” in this post title, I’m not exaggerating. I drove around and tried to make sure I didn’t get lost since someone was expecting me to come back… you know, to do my job and stuff.


Here’s a little more of what I captured while wandering.



I wish I’d have had the opportunity to spend more time here. There are tons of good turn offs to stop, park and wander. You can find more information on the park here.

Have you ever been to White Tank Mountain Park? Favorite place to wander?
