Sailboats and Saguaros just don’t seem to go together, but here they are at Lake Pleasant Regional Park in the extreme northern part of Maricopa County, Arizona.

Where there’s water deep enough to take a boat, a boat is so often what you’ll find, it seems Scott, even in the middle of the desert. Smashing image!

I think you’re right, Adrian. 🙂

That’s where I’d be, too.

We’ll definitely be going back….
You captured a very interesting photo with such a great story to tell.

Thank you, Terry.
Very clever catch there, Scott. I bet it’s quite nice out there on the water.

It wasn’t quite “scorching” when we were there, but there was NO SHADE anywhere near the shore or ANYWHERE ELSE, so I think we’ll be making our future excursions there after October….. 🙂
And yes, I think it will be very nice out there on the water. My sons and I want to get some type of watercraft, so I’ll let you know how it is after we get out there.

You are so right … I wouldn’t have put those together! I’ll bet it’s wonderful to be floating / sailing out there!

I’ll let you know after we get out there, LB. 🙂

I used to sail out there almost every weekend for a few years in the 80s. It was the sailboat lake. Now I haven’t been back for ages, not since they made it bigger. I’ve driven by on my way to Yarnell but have never stopped again.

It’s interesting how our lives go in patterns like that….
