I bet you did not know the Arizona desert does, indeed, have Fall foliage! I captured the following photos today while riding my bike. See! We’re not ALL desert! Enjoy!!
The water you see is not really a lake, it’s the result of a recent rain storm. This is the retention basin that captures rain water – on a near-by golf course. Camelback Mountain in the background.
Another photo of the “lake” – retention basin!
Another angle – Camelback Mountain in the far distance with a photo of the “Praying Monk.”
