Trip to Arizona

Bill went to Arizona to help his father with his cataract surgery. The operation was a fantastic success and his vision is now better than ever. His recovery was quite fast even though his father is 84, so Bill had time to take a few pictures with his cell phone while he was there. The local temperatures were above normal at the time so most these pictures were taken in 110 °F.  Thanks Bill for sharing these photos and it so good to have you home!!


We took a drive out to Fountain Hills, Arizona and saw the fantastic fountain in Fountain Park. It sends water over 300' in the air.


This is the bridge at Roosevelt Dam, which is about 100 mile drive from Mesa, AZ.


This photo was taken near Tonto National Monument. The area is famous for ancient Native American cliff dwellings.


The prickly pear cactus makes these purple fruits which my father says can be harvested, crushed and made in to a savory juice to drink.
