Pictures: Watson Lake, outside of Prescott, Arizona

Today's outing was a clamber over the boulders that are around Watson Lake, which is just outside of Prescott, Arizona.

My husband Eric and I were taking a date night away, to get some two-time focus.

We stayed in Wickenburg last night, and today drove up over the mountains to Prescott, to get some shots of this neat little lake.

The boulders are grippy enough that you don't slip around as you climb them, and they are low and rounded enough to make an easy adventure. They also look really really cool!

This is also a haven for quite a few different types of birds. I saw egrets, coots, and mallards, right off. I'll need to go back with my binoculars and more time. Also? This pair of Canadian geese decided to pose for me. But I think one of them wanted push the other one out of HIS picture. 

Great day!

Pictures: The desert is in bloom at the White Tank Mountain Regional Park

It is spring here in the Arizona desert, which means I've been spending an evening or so a week out hiking with my sweeties. And where I go, I take my camera with me! Here's a dozen of the keepers from tonight's outing in the White Tank Mountain Regional Park, just west of Phoenix. Most of these are in horizontal/landscape mode, because I collect pictures to add to my screen saver.
