Rock Springs Cafe


Rock Springs Cafe is located on the I-17, in Black Canyon City. Their pies are to die for!!!!!!!!! So is their organic coffee. Yummy! So if you're ever heading up or down past there, stop and get some pie. They also have a diner inside hat I hear is also fantastic.

The Orpheum Theatre















Just around the corner from City Hall is the Orpheum Theatre.
The theatre was completed in 1929 and recently has gone under
nearly $14M in renovations. The theatre is spectacular inside and
out.

Tres Rios Festival


March 6 and 7 was the annual Tres Rios Festival in Goodyear, AZ. Unfortunately Sunday (the day I was there to volunteer for my office) was a rainy, windy, crappy day. I still got a few good photos, like this handsome Harris Hawk.
