Goodbye Summer … Hello Fall

Seasons come and seasons go.

The temperatures are cooling off here in Central Arizona; Fall is in the air. Summer is over; another chapter is closed. We had a great summer with so many wonderful adventures and memories. We enjoyed sharing them with you.

We went on several different hikes together and discovered some beautiful places to explore locally.

We also went on some trips away from home and visited some gorgeous places along the way. I hope you enjoyed following our summer adventures as much as we enjoyed sharing them with you. Now … bring on the new season … Hello Fall!

A Day at the Lake

Willy and I explored the shores of Watson Lake.

It was a gorgeous day for a hike around the shores of Watson Lake in Prescott Arizona. It is no secret that Willy loves the water, so this was definitely his kind of adventure!

One just does not take Willy anywhere near water and not let him go swimming. Oh how Willy loves to play in the water!

As we hiked around the shores we saw some people in their kayaks. Willy thought that was pretty cool. Personally, I think he was hoping they would offer him a ride.

Watson Lake is surrounded by Granite boulders. I had a lot of fun with this photo shoot. Gorgeous scenery, beautiful water reflections and a very handsome dog. It made my job fairly easy.

Willy didn’t care so much about the photo part, but he did really enjoy climbing the boulders. I think it made him feel like he was on top of the world!

Sometimes you just have to do something that makes you feel glad to be alive!

Until next time, get out and go on an adventure of your own!

Willy’s Texas Adventure¬†

Living life on the edge!

Willy and I went to Texas a couple of weeks ago. It was a short trip but we did manage to visit the Amistad National Recreational Area, which includes Amistad Reservoir and the Pecos River.

We hiked to some cliffs that overlooked the Amistad Reservoir. The views there were breath-taking. In my case, with my fear of heights, quite literally breath-taking. Willy, on the other hand, thought being on the edge was great fun! I refused to let him get close enough to peer over the edge, even though he wanted to. Willy felt larger than life standing up there on those cliffs.

After enjoying the view from the cliffs, we decided to go check out the water and some boats at the marina. It was a hot day and Willy enjoyed the cool water.

After Willy cooled off, we hit the road again. This time we stopped at a scenic overview that overlooked the Pecos River. Willy had a great vantage point to look down at the River below. We even saw a lone kayaker paddling up River, far below our vantage point.

We had a great time and can’t wait until our next adventure!
