Top contributor Jeff Walrich did a phenomenal job with this drone video from the areas surrounding Phoenix, Arizona.  The city which had a population of less than 100k as late as the 1940's is now the center of a metropolitan area of nearly 5 million.  However, even as this desert city has grown it still offers some of the best close-in nature spots of any large US city.  Despite decades of spreading sprawl, it's still possible drive for less than a half hour, and feel like you're a million miles from civilization.
