Located approximately 15 miles from my home is San Tan Mountain Regional Park. 10,000 acres of gorgeous Sonoran Desert, just waiting to be explored. On this cool and overcast morning, my daughter and I enjoyed a nice loop hike through the southern end of the park. We decided to trail blaze and headed to a beautiful red rock outcropping.
