Phoenix, Arizona may be one of the most unsustainable cities in the world; it is surrounded by an inhospitable landscape that sees little rain and supports little life. The city itself is a tragedy, an irony in the very sense of the word, almost more of a desert than the surrounding environment. Yet beyond the strip malls and Wal Marts awaits what is perhaps the most unforgiving and stark deserts of North America. Water sources are far and few in between, and summer temperatures can soar well above 115 Degrees F. Saguaros and Coyotes are your only friends out here, singing songs deep into the night under a sky as clear as water.
