A little bit of Lake Pleasant….

I haven’t been out ON the lake yet, but these are a few more images from when my little one and I went out to the park for a visit a week or so ago…it was more of an exploration, actually…checking it out to see what we might do out there in the future.

I had mentioned in an earlier post how it was so strange in my experience to have Saguaro cacti in such proximity to a body of water like this…but here it is again….

Sailboats and speedboats on the lake….we hope to be out there in a canoe at some point….

While it’s not a true panoramic shot, comprised of multiple images, it is a wider-angle image that provides more of a panoramic view of a portion of the lake and the surrounding desert…with more of those Saguaro cacti and other desert vegetation.

  1. If Arizona is anywhere near as hot as I’ve heard it is I’d be spending a lot of time sitting in that lake.

  4. Can’t help but wonder what them Saguaros are thinking about all that water nearby. πŸ˜‰
    Nice shots.

    • They’re probably thinking about how drunk all that water would make them. πŸ™‚

  8. Can’t believe you didn’t wet a line… Lake Pleasant is an awesome fishery with great scenic views. It can be a tough lake to fish but it has it’s moments. This is one of my preferred lakes I go to throughout the year. It’s definitely a good time. Don’t forget to try out Dillon’s at Scorpion Bay; they have some great BBQ.

    • Hello Anthony – this was just an exploratory venture…checking it out to see what we might do in the future. I certainly intend to make it back out there with the fishing gear….and maybe stop at Dillon’s, as well. Thank you for the suggestion. πŸ™‚
