Well, we have lived in the Verde Valley for almost 12 years. And we have driven the interstate to Phoenix probably a hundred times in those years. And we have never seen Lake Pleasant.
So, we went.
And we loved it.
The water was so clear, and there were rocks everywhere to throw. And we could throw them all we wanted and not have to worry about hitting anyone other than ourselves... that's what happens when you go to the lake on a Tuesday in February.
