Occasionally, at elevations around 4000 feet above sea level, the peaks are snow-capped in the winter. A few large, well defined washes cross the area along with numerous ill defined and criss-crossing wash courses.

The area has relatively lush and diverse desert vegetation. Within the DCRanch development the design character emphasizes organic site forms blending with the terrain, native desert plantings and architecture which evokes the historic ranching images of Arizona’s storied past. Earthly colors and materials, structures which take advantage of shade and breezes, and creative interpretations of traditional designs are emphasized. Elsewhere the built setting is fairly common, generic architecture of stucco and tile. Future key landmarks within the area include the DC Ranch Town Center and the Reata/Beardsley Wash Greenbelt System.
