THE Trip, Granite Dells, Prescott, Arizona

Copyright 2011, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

Just 3 days before we were scheduled to leave Camp Verde and head north into National Park heaven, I read a post at Nick's Blog (Gypsy Journal) about Granite Dells and Prescott Arizona.  We had not intended to drive to Prescott, but his post changed our minds.  So, the next morning off we went, to Prescott and points beyond.

We were very glad we went, nice ride over, this very special lake to visit, we enjoyed watching the kayaks peacefully gliding over the lake surface, families picnicking, there was even a family reunion taking place.   If we lived in Prescott I would have a hard time staying away from this gorgeous place.

The photos.  Remember clicking on them opens to a new larger format, click your back button on your browser to return here to Reflections.  Clicking on the two panoramic photos is encouraged!  LOL

Running out of descriptive verbs, so, simply, beautiful!

* Here is a fun web page about Granite Dells, including a bit of missing gold mystery.

What a great bunch of pics for me to enjoy on this holiday weekend. Absolutely gorgeous --- probably cuz it looks a lot like home!!--eastern Oregon variation.

Ooh--just gorgeous. Makes me want to hop right into one of those cool blue pools of water.

Karen said...

Ok...missed this one earlier but glad I saw it because Prescott is one of those places I'm curious about since both my son and my brother have been there and rave over it. Both said they could live there. I don't believe I have the vocabulary to express how I feel about your pictures above!

Very nice! I am a Prescottonian and I feel proud you took the time to visit and cover some our our beautiful town. Watson and Willow Lakes are two of my very favorite places and I kayak there often.
