First started with a trip out to Dankworth to check on the progress of the park & lake which has been closed for the last year to perform a complete overhaul. During my hike around the lake and along the Dos Arroyos trail, I saw that they have recently put in place fish structures (old christmas trees & pvc pipes) along the dry lake bottom and it shouldn't be long now before they start to let the mountain streams fill the lake back in :y:

Then it was off to big brother Roper Lake to meet Pam who had earlier arrived for a week long stay in Safford. After getting acquainted for about an hour at her rented cabin, we took a short walk around the lake with a trip out onto the island before returning back to the cabin at sunset. After dark, we had an awesomely hilarious visit by many of the resident raccoons which ended up being a recurring theme throughout the week after our day hikes!
