During your visit to Arizona if you have a thing about desert scenery and never-ending skies and are looking for the authentic western experience with modern amenities the towns of Cave Creek and Carefree is the way to go. Cave Creek and Carefree share a border with Scottsdale to the south and the Tonto National Forest to the north. At some point in your stay you are likely to come across some Arizona wildlife. The coyote, for example, are in abundance and though nocturnal by nature you are likely to see one during the day. At night you will hear a coyote call his pack together with a long high pitched howl followed by a series of yips, yelps and barks after the pack has gathered. Some of the other critters you can spot are wild horses, bobcats, mountain lion, hawks, golden eagles, roadrunners, woodpeckers and owls just to name a few.
Only last week I was traveling to Carefree to take pictures of a new custom vacation home that we now manage. Sure enough just as I was pulling up to the home a coyote ran across the road and then stopped to watch me as I drove by. Fortunately this time I had my camera with me and at the ready. I was able to snap this quick photo before the coyote ran off into the desert.
