Looks so refreshing and inviting out there in arid country. A wonder how those trees can grow in what looks like solid rock. And a great image to share with us.

it was a very nice day, Gunta…the high was in the low 80s up there and over 100 down in the desert. I would guess that the trees just get it going,,,dropping the roots down until they get what they need. 🙂

“until the get what they need”… Fortunately, they seem to be getting whatever it is they need! They look lush and healthy. Especially nice to get away from those triple digits!

Very picturesque . . . I could spend hours there.

It certainly is, Emilio. I spent several hours there and wish I could have stayed even longer….

Thank you, Scott… I live in Strawberry and have seen quite a few shots of Watson, but this one is particularly excellent! Great capture!

You’re welcome…and thank you, too, Michael. 🙂
Wow Scott, this is a knockout image. We stayed in Prescott in October 2015 (briefly) and took a short walk around Granite Dells. I think the rocks are similar but there’s way less water. I’m glad this is a prelude….can’t wait to see more! I hope you had a little extra time off this week and are enjoying it.

Thank you, Lynn…and I guess you were right there, then. And yes, this is but a prelude!
I did have an extra day, Lynn…government workers and holidays. I stayed close to home and played a bit of racquetball…off the roads and out of the holiday traffic. 😉

That’s the thing – you get a holiday and so does everyone else. I’m glad you were able to get an early start and explore in relative peace.

Yes, there was “relative” peace up there, Lynn…. 🙂
