To escape the heat, see some different scenery, and put some miles on my 3 year old car that just hit 17,000, we went up north on Friday to Prescott, AZ. This is Lynx Lake in the Prescott National Forest.
The scent of pine and the cool breeze as we hiked around the lake was refreshing.
It was 15-20 degrees cooler there than in Phoenix…although we got lucky in Phoenix today and it was much cooler here, too.
