My whole life I have been a Desert Rat, and gladly so. I love the dry heat, warm air, and most especially, I love the feeling of stepping into the light and having the sun’s rays seep deep into my skin, course through my veins, and settle in my bones.
However, as much as I love the warm weather, even I couldn’t stand the excessive Phoenix heat wave this weekend. With temperatures of up to 116 degrees, the hubs, pup, and I, knew we needed a Northern Arizona Escape. It seems we were not the only Phoenicians who had this same brilliant idea. To avoid large crowds we decided to go to a more secluded watery oasis. Fool Hallow in Show Low was just the place. It felt as if we had the whole lake to ourselves.
We rented some paddle boards, which was such a fun idea! All my years of ballet training really paid off on these bouncing, balancing boards. The water and weather were perfect and we got to try out our new camera, a Nikon 1AW1, which is waterproof, shockproof, and freezeproof. Perfect for all our wandering and adventuring needs.
