Those who may be looking for a home in this area won’t want to hesitate — popular homes can go pending in as little as 14 days. Add to the other amenities plenty of opportunities for outdoor activity, including the popular Dreamy Draw Recreation Area, and it's no wonder that homes move quickly.

The trail crosses a number of desert washes and, at times, becomes somewhat rocky. Trail users will observe a wide variety of native Sonoran trees and other plant life and may encounter a glance at the resident wildlife.

Take in some culture
The North Valley Arts Academy Theatre Program at Shadow Mountain High School held casting for its Spring 2021 musical production of Urinetown in January, with rehearsals set to begin this month. The performance will be live streamed April 15–17.
Urinetown is described as “a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself.”
