Sometimes it's a lake; sometimes it's NOT! Lower Lake Mary, the smaller of Flagstaff's twin lakes (in Arizona), has a tendency to disappear during long DRY spells that periodically hit the area. When the lake has water in it, which is most of the time, its banks are usually lined with anglers trying to catch the trout which AZ Game and Fish stocks here.

If it stays full for a year or two, it will pick up a population of northern pike and catfish. During wet times it's a good place to watch waterfoul and catch a glimpse of the bald eagles that winter here. Otherwise ... BRING A KITE!!!!!!!! (March 2, 2008)

A very young Ponderosa pine watches over the lake.
