Christmas evening hike around the lake and through the park.
Dramatic skies above gave the whole area a very beautiful winter look.
Everything looked good, but man ... I have never seen the lake this low!

Then a stop at Roper on the way home to catch the sunset and it was a good one 7/10.

Big storm hit the Gila Valley.
First drove up the Swift Trail to a favorite perch. Great lightning show, but too much rain for pics.
Then drove down to Roper Lake. Again great lightning show, but too much rain for pics.
Flash flood warning throughout the night ... tonight was a big one!
:D

Evening/night fishing with Jayden.
With ponchos on we endured 3 hours of solid rain.
Not a single fish caught, but great conservation pulled us through!

Trifecta today.
First a short one up Jacobson to see if the recent rains had the creek flowing. It has not, just a few pools.
Second was a walk around Roper Lake in the blazing heat with Addie :sweat:
Third was a much cooler walk around the block after sunset.
:)

Kayaking with Jayden.
Wanted to test out a little more my repaired shoulder.
Took it easy for the most part, but also went full burst a few times with 0 problems.
Am 7 months in and now feel about 85% recovered .....
..... bring on summer, I'm ready for the water stuff again!
:D

Paddle boarding with Jayden to start.
Addie joined us later for the hike around the park.
Then some fishing through sunset.
Jayden caught the only fish, I caught a tan.
Good day with good friends!
:D

Easter Sunday and it was good to be back out at Roper!
Was first reunited with my 2 favorite Co-Ranger girls and also got to meet the 3rd Ranger.
I took a friend out for the first time and we both caught 1 rainbow trout each to start our afternoon.
We then hiked around the lake, through the campgrounds & along the Mariah Mesa Trail.
A good sunset was enjoyed along the lake shore before leaving.
We will be back soon, my shoulder rehab has gone great and I think I'm ready for my much missed water activities again!
:D

It's been a while .....
Except for seeing the iconic hot tub filled in with dirt, the park looked good!
Merry Christmas

Woke up to a near blizzard.
Had to take my cat to the vet - roads were a nightmare!
Came home and dug out my Grand Canyon winter gear to take a hike around the lake - it was great! :)

Got two more (unexpected) life birds today! I had been looking for Cedar Waxwings for a while - totally worth the wait. And a California Gull - third different Gull on the lake in three days. :y:
That makes my total for the year 180, almost all in AZ - not bad considering I am new at this and didn't get serious until summer ... gonna try for 250 in 2019! :D
