Visit Erin and the Cloud Cots at Margaret T. Hance park in Phoenix

Wednesdays from 1-3pm in March and April and other special events.

More about Cloud Cots.


The sky was spotted and dotted with clouds yet the sun was still desert strong. The Cloud Cots were pulled under a set of Palo Verde trees for better LOOKing UP.  Surprise. Joy. Charm. A small bird was very busy building a new spring nest.

Tax Man

For most Americans April 15th is synonymous with stress, piles of receipts, confusing forms, and a last minute run to the post office to file last years' income tax return... but not for this number cruncher.  CPA, David C,  was all smiles as he took a minute or two to lie down and Look Up!

(Thanks for your willingness and unbridled enthusiasm to participate in Cloud Cots and for preparing countless returns!)

Spotting Pisces

While the Cloud Cots are only out during day light hours, often conversation floats to the celestial bodies found in the night sky. Luckily, there's an astronomy app for mobile devices that locates the positions of the stars and planets in the heavens no matter the time of day. Sun up or sun down, it's always a perfect time to LOOK UP.

From Head to Toe

Sunset in the desert can be a delicious time to lie down and Look Up. This charming couple shared a twilight Cloud Cot experience while discussing their upcoming European Railway adventure. Bon Voyage!

Alaskan Skies

Wednesday ushered in temperatures near 100 and a cloud blanket that offered up unexpected coverage. Joshua, a cloud connoisseur from Alaska enthusiastically claimed a cot to Look Up. Impressed by his view of swirling clouds, steel totems and reaching branches, Joshua snapped a photograph.

Field Trip

The Cloud Cots took a field trip to Roosevelt Row for Phoenix Urban Design Week. Urbanites flocked to the cots to Look Up and snap instagrams of the shifting cloud fields while soaking up the desert sunset.

Writer's Break

Somedays the words get plain ol' stuck in the noggin. The flow is a no go. Paul Lamar Hunter, author of No Love, No Charity, took a writer's break outside of Burton Barr Library to Look Up.

Today while watching big o'white clouds roll in from California, this Cloud Cotter gave a science lesson in bovine milk health. Thanks for LOOKing UP at the clouds and protecting my dairy delights!
