    Default Arizona boating

    I have stopped here in the past but have never had the boat with me, so here we are with the boat. Absolutely flat water, WARM WATER !! , and very little boat traffic. No other water skiers on the lake. Sure beats Colorado cold water ..

    Jim,
    Gotta say I'm extremely envious up here in the Rockies.
    Looks like you had the whole lake to yourself.
    Where exactly are you and how long did it take to get there?

    Oh,
    By the way. I've got some friends in Kansas and we were kicking around the idea of meeting in or around Denver this next season. Where should we be looking since I wouldn't go without my boat

    Default Az boating

    Roosevelt lake , N E of Phoenix, 750 miles from Denver. My sister lives in Payson and we are visiting there. Let me know what your plans are as time goes by and we can find a lake for you . Oh yeah it took me a day and a half to get there. Jim.

    Dang that looks great. I might just have to move there to get away from the winter.

    Yup , it is pretty nice . If you don't have to go into the valley (Phoenix) it is great. No traffic , smog, people, etc..

    That looks awesome Jim. Beats the heck out of Chatfield and Cherry Creek, I'm sure!

    Awesome Jim. I grew up in Tucson and spent a lot of time all over AZ but never had a boat to enjoy it. Never even knew anyone with a boat LOL. I'm glad to see you got awesome water after that long drive.

    Yes it is great to get out of town and to warm water and weather for the end of the season for me. I think people here in AZ can ski year round if they so desire. We are heading out tomorrow for the lake again for more fun in the sun. Then drain the engine and pack it up for the return trip to Colorado. I am thinking about moving here in a few years if all goes well.

    Default Just another fun day in AZ

    More pics from today. 2 times at this lake and no one else is skiing on the lake . Every once in a while a fishing boat would go by. Absolutely flat water at times. Heading back to Colorado Thursday . Jim.
