How tell you’re in Phoenix

The heat is one significant indication. So are the thousands of people who jam area baseball fields during spring training. And, I suppose, pistol-packing denizens also suggest that you’re at least in Arizona. But really nothing says the American Southwest like a towering cactus. (P.S. I snapped this image while on a retreat with a group of restaurant consultants.)
