I did this in 2005 when I visited Phoenix, Arizona and the mountain I stood on top of was South Mountain. You can drive up to the top and get a picture of the scenic view below, I loved seeing Phoenix from another view! It was breathtakingly beautiful!
I've always had this weird idea that my husband and I would sit in front of a fireplace and sip wine (which is weird, because I don't now, nor do I ever plan on drinking) while reading, each in our own respective chairs. To me, that is romantic.
