Blue Water in Arizona?

Woods Canyon Lake consists of 55 surface-acres of cold, blue water. This mountain lake has an average depth of 25 feet, and a maximum depth of 40 feet. Chevelon Creek flows into and out of it. Because it's deep, the lake maintains a good water quality, and is stocked weekly from May through Sept. with catchable-sized Rainbow trout. I strongly suggest that a visit to central AZ INCLUDE this lake. Even if you "hate fishing," you can hike on several trails and observe the area's wildlife. Within the last few months, I have observed Bald Eagles, Great Blue Heron and Osprey (fish-eagles) on this lake. In the surrounding forested areas, I have seen Black bears, Rocky Mountain elk, and coyotes. I'm still searching for cougars & rattlesnakes. :) The foliage seen in the foreground (to the right) is New Mexico Locust and Ponderosa pine. June 23, 2008

Very beautiful!

This is an amazing color. Much of our water around here in WA is a faded teal.

Re: Very beautiful!

That's because a lot of the water that you
have comes from glaciers or the sky.

The water in this lake comes mainly from the
ground, in the form of a fresh-water spring.

And, the blue skies help to make this body of
water much more "blue" than it actually is.
