The time just after sunrise and before sunset is referred to as the “golden hour.” Its name derives from the brilliant shadows and colors that appear just as night comes and right as darkness disappears. Light always illuminates the landscape, sometimes in magnificent ways — even after the darker moments. You could say that PHX East Valley is now in one of its more brilliant golden hours. Despite the darkness surrounding the pandemic, the East Valley region continues to grow, expand, and celebrate economic success.
