I just got back from visiting my mother in Indiana. I’m excited to have different sorts of photos to post~on top of all the Watson Lake photos I’ve posted recently (more to come from there soon). It’s nice to have a change of scenery now and then. But I’m happy to be back in Phoenix and it’s starting to feel a little autumn-ish here, too~a very little. It was unseasonably hot and humid while I was in Indiana~yuk.
My parents built their house 40 years ago. My father died in 1997 but, until about a year ago, my mother never knew this little lake existed right in her neighborhood, about 3 blocks from her house. Last year I google-mapped it and this year I was determined to find it in person. You can’t see it from any streets; the backyards of several houses surround it and it’s down low.
This access road is technically someone’s driveway so I was trespassing. Oops, sorry. Click photos for more detail.
I wasn’t the only one enjoying the view. I had 4 companions.
