Piestewa Peak Phoenix Mountain Preserve Arizona - hikers on Summit

This is the view from the true summit at hikers on the pseudo-summit on Piestewa Peak in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve in Phoenix, Arizona. View to NE. Phoenix has preserved significant land in the city limits for outdoor recreation. The Phoenix Mountain Preserve is in the middle of the city. South Mountain is huge and at the south of Phoenix. This was named Squaw Peak until it was recently renamed in honor of Lori Piestewa - a Hopi woman who was killed in Iraq.
