I have been living in the South East Valley for 12 years. I love the walking and biking trails through all of the neighborhoods. One of our favorite biking trails is Queen Creek Wash. There is a paved path that starts just behind the Safeway at Power and Queen Creek and continues thru the wash for miles. After about a 2 ½ mile bike ride, there is a great park for the kids to play at! I have always enjoyed the ride but this winter, riding through there with the family I realized how beautiful it is.
The huge trees and large bushes provide plenty of shade but allow just enough of the sunlight through to make beautiful shots
Just off the path is the wash and it doesn’t matter what time of year it is or what time of day, It’s absolutely gorgeous! There is always wildlife and its completely full of trees, bushes and colorful flowers. One evening, while walking through Queen Creek Wash and looking around, I realized that as a photographer, I had just come across one of the most beautiful and unique places that I have found in the East Valley to take my clients for their photos. I took my family down there for Christmas pictures and then continued to recommend it to my clients for a variety of different types of shoots. I have done numerous shoots in the wash now ranging from family portraits to professional head shots. The huge trees and large bushes provide plenty of shade but allow just enough of the sunlight through to make beautiful shots! There is a wooden swing that hangs from one of the large trees that the kids love to swing on! The next time you decide to take the family on a bike ride or a walk, consider Queen Creek Wash.
