#TreeSquares: Lynx Lake in Prescott National Forest

To join in the fun of squares this month, create your square post and include a pingback to any of my daily square posts in July. Don’t forget to use the theme’s tag – TreeSquare, and I’d love it if you left a comment.

In this month’s square’s challenge I will start at home and spiral farther and farther from home to share different tree species in my travels. All of these posts will work for both Becky B’s Squares and Cee’s Flower of the Day, #FOTD

#Prescott Walk #15 Prescott National Forest at Lynx Lake

A five or six minute drive past Costco in Prescott, AZ, civilization disappears, turning in to Prescott National Forest. Within seven miles of the City Center you have arrived at Lynx Lake in the midst of the Prescott National Forest.

The temperature had cooled to 96 degrees by the time we drove from our driveway at 99 degrees. It was quiet in the parking lot an hour before sunset on June 16th during prime hiking season.

We saw one brave paddle boarder in the center of the lake, two pick-nicking couples, a camper, one dog, a tall young man with his mother receiving a lesson on jogging and a few parked cars.

In the next post we will walk around a bit at Lynx Lake.

    • Yes, and that is the problem. They are huge areas and other things grow well in some of the National Forests. Monitoring activity is a huge responsibility for rangers.

    • All the lakes are starving in Prescott, Becky. They are not even great for kayaking. The algae and bugs swarm the surface, and you can barely get through with a small boat. 🙂

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
