After a month now of enduring the Frye Fire, smoke & heat ..... I needed to get away for a night!
Had never visited Fool Hollow Lake in Show Low before and decided on a quick overnight.

Salt River Canyon - Spent about an hour at the crossing rest stop checking out the area. Walked the old bridge over then down to the river. The Salt was not flowing much, but was still a cool sight from above and below.

Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area (state park) - Arrived early and spent the first 4 hours hiking the entire park. Walked the Lake Trail and through all the campgrounds & day use areas. This is one nice park, 5 stars from me!
At noon I checked in to my campsite (bald eagle loop #24) and got camp all set up before spending the rest of the day and evening walking the lake and visiting with others including the friendly staff. There were a TON of people there with all campgrounds full, but that was OK and expected being the 4th of July weekend.
Night came and I spent it with an unexpected campfire (no fire restrictions for Apache-Sitgreves right now) :o
dinner and a little star photography before an early bed.

Awoke at 5am, packed up and headed out back home. Before leaving the cool high pine country, I completed a short morning hike along the Buena Vista Trail just outside of town.
Show Low, Fool Hollow & my hike were all beautiful, I hated to leave after just 1 day, but will be back for a more extended stay in the future!
:D
