{prescott} into the woods

May 26, 2009

This past Memorial Day long weekend (which wasn’t really a long weekend because I worked) was GABC’s church family retreat up in Prescott, Ariz. Once again, (just like Tucson and Phoenix which aren’t pronounced how they’re spelled) I’m tolded Prescott is supposed to be pronounced “press-kit”. This state is strange.

ANYWAYS … Prescott is WAY more north than phx and has WAY higher elevation so it was cool, even chilly at night. But more importantly, instead of an abundance of prickly cactus, there were pine trees everywhere.

One of two lakes in the area. (Maybe they’re twins?)

Newly found: phx perk: it’s not so far from other climate types
An hour and a half away and you’re in a real evergreen forest!

    i wonder why the forefathers of phx built the city where it is now, instead of up north where prescott, flagstaff, or even payson sits. phoenicians would be much happier with the trees and cooler weather.

    great shot of the lake…kinda looks like a river.
