Fun in the Sun at Canyon Lake, Part Two

I am continuing with my trip on Canyon Lake in Arizona. This is elephant rock way on top of the rock cropping. Can you see it?

We thought this looked like an Indian head, facing to the left.

I thought that THIS looked like a bunch of ET heads gathered together.

Some more beautiful scenery.

Someone piled stones and made a cairn at the edge of the water.

We went as far as we could go on the lake, then turned around and started to head back. When we got to a wide part of the lake, we threw the anchor over, tied two of the boats together, and partied. The third boat went on by themselves.

There was eating,



Diane and Pat singing, "They're gonna put me in a whorehouse"
and dancing!

It was Fun with a capital "F"! But, alas, our time was running out. It was time to head back to the marina. Our gas gauge showed 1/4 of a tank so we were a little worried if we would make it back. We kept the boats tied together for awhile and Jim K. towed ours while piloting his boat.

When we got a couple miles out from the marina, we unhooked the boats and then MY Jim took over piloting our boat.

Oh Captain, My Captain!
Right before coming into the marina, we saw the Dolly paddle-boat, full of tourists. The other boat went up alongside it, squirted some of the people, and I believe, sang, "Hello Dolly!"

Jim and me.

Just two weeks prior to this excursion, we took my sisters on the Dolly for a 90 minute tour of Canyon Lake. I took a lot of the same pictures, but a couple that you haven't seen are these:

Ann(l) and Linda(r)
Some more rock formations:

This was is called "Two Sisters" and is supposed to look like two women facing each other.

This one is two-faced. It looks like  a little girl looking to the left, and supposedly Beethoven sitting at the organ on the right. (Sometimes it takes a little imagination and maybe a little drinky-poo!)

I picked out this one. Looks like a screaming face lying on its side to me. See it?

I like this photo of the bell at the back of the boat.

We were lucky enough to see some big horn sheep on the mountain. I zoomed in with my long lens. Here are a couple of cropped shots.

The REAL Captain, My Captain of the Dolly.

Both trips were wonderful. I would highly recommend the Dolly cruise for $20 - it's well worth it! As far as renting the pontoon boats - we will definitely do that again next year! It was so much fun!
