Cindy and I went hiking on her birthday! Even though it's starting to cool off a little in Phoenix, it's still not cool enough for me to hike. So we went up to Prescott for the day. I have always liked the Granite Dells area near Watson Lake, but I had never hiked there. I was excited to get into the boulders. It was a really pretty area and there were some fun sights to see. The trail has some differing trerrain. There are some nice sturdy bridges in one place.
And we were often near the creek. Sometimes we walked over boulders. There are white spots painted on the boulders so you know where the trail is.
And yes, Iwas really there. most of my photos oare of Cindy's back. That's wht I am looking at most of the time. Cindy is always the point person.
The trail goes along the creek here. The creek is covered in some plants and moss here. It was a bit stagnant because we were by the dam for the lake and it was a bit odiferous.
This was the only place on the trail where you could see the lake. We dropped down below it after this point.
A few hills. It was a really nice trail. It took us just under two hours. We are slow hikers though. Or at least I am. We think it would be fun to bring some ladies from Church back to do this trail. Who wants to go?
