Cave Creek and Carefree
All travel begins somewhere. For me, it begins right here in my hometown of Cave Creek, Arizona. With a population of roughly five thousand, it has a small-town feel but, thanks to urban sprawl, intermingles with Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Carefree (which in turn morph into Glendale, Paradise Valley, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Sun City, Peoria, Tempe, Ahwatukee….) just enough to not make residents go crazy.
