As a follow up to my post yesterday about Phoenix area desert parks for photography I should point out that the 8 desert parks I mention just scratch the surface.  I have lived here a long time, but have not even gotten close to getting to all the parks we have in the greater Phoenix area.  Dawna from the Maricopa Parks Department pointed out that their newest park, Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area, is another great spot to photograph the Arizona desert.  I have not been to this park yet, but the description on the County’s site is very enticing.  It seems to have all the great photographic elements: archaeology sites, riparian areas, wildflowers in spring, tons of vegetation, and more.  I have added this park to my “spots to photograph” list and will post once I make my way up there.

Check out the Maricopa County Parks site and let me know if there are any other parks you recommend.
