My daughter is visiting from California so I took her out to Canyon Lake for some jet skiing.
110 today? No problem.
What a day it was.
The kids are back in school so the crowds are now gone, the weather was incredible, the lake was glossy smooth, the water was a little over 80 and there were maybe 5 boats on the entire lake. We had the place to ourselves.
The bighorn sheep were out in full force and we went all the way to the end of the lake to enjoy the sandy beach and beautiful mountain views. We were the only people there.
A picture perfect day on a beautiful desert lake.
I've lived here for over 5 years now and this place still captivates me.

I just love Arizona.

Me four.

Well, until the snowbirds arrive, that is. Then the solitude of our great parks is shattered and AZ turns into a silver-haired, rule-ignoring, restaurant-clogging, bad-driving nightmare.

I'm not a snowbird, coming there for Oct/Nov, back to Ohio for 3 miserable months (don't ask) and then back to AZ for March/April. Been doing this for 4 years and yes, it still captivates me. Work used to make me travel the US, particularly all over FL, AZ and CA. The flatness and blandness of FL was easy to cross off my 2nd home list and while CA has a few good spots like Santa Ynez Valley, the COL and politics are disagreeable and then AZ, wow. I hate to leave and then can't wait to get back out. I motor through a variety of screen shots on my PC, all of AZ, and after being away for a couple of months, start searching for blog reports for people who have recently been there for hiking/cycling. Dang, just love it there.

Another Arizona lover here!
We moved here last year from California and we're glad we did. California has a plentitude of offerings but it's become so expensive, and the liberal-leftist politics are putting so much strain on business and individual freedom that lots of people are moving out.
Arizona's landscape is more than just a vast desert, it has so much to see and do. I don't see how anyone can get bored with so much outdoor recreation around the state.

Sweet! Which part of Arizona do you live in?

We have friends who moved there (north Phoenix I think?) and at first they were bummed 'cause they didn't like "desert" in general, however, that's where he landed because of a job. It's been almost 10 years and they are staying put because now they really love it!

I live in the Pheonix valley but almost as far east as you can go and still be considered in the Phoenix metro area. Lots of lakes and a large river on this side of town. Technically I'm in east Mesa.
Great area.
