I went out to phoenix two years ago for the first time ever

Looking down at the landscape from the plane was amazing - never saw anything like it.

When I was there I did some great hiking,saw some more really amazing things.

About half way through my first hike it started to dawn on me. There is NOOOOOO water - anywhere. When I hike in CT - you cant go 2 miles without running into water.
After that first hike I went back to the hotel and it really started to make me wonder. Phoenix is a big city. Lots of people.

Who the hell thought building a huge city in the middle of a friggin desert was a good idea? If it doesn't rain for two weeks in CT we cut down on well usage. What do these people do? Not drink?

I dont see a drought as much as I see insanity.

Cue up Sam Kinison and his world hunger bit.
