Take A Trip: Woods Canyon Lake, AZ

A few weeks ago, we headed North to cooler weather and greener scenery.  We stayed in Forest Lakes and took a trip to Woods Canyon Lake.  There's quite a few other lakes/streams to stop on the way with plenty of campsites to stay at.
The drive up was beautiful to slowly watch the cactus disappear and the trees take over. It was about a 2 hour drive up from Gilbert, located between Payson & Heber.

There's plenty of opportunity for fishing and hiking around.  We tried our hand at catching crawdads at the edge of the lake we took a little walk to from where we parked.  
It wasn't too hot or hard for our 4 year old to walk on his own.

One of my other favorite parts was the vista points they had on the way into the lakes & campsites from the highway. There's a reason they have these view points, SO gorgeous.  It was a bright clear day and you can see the green trees for miles! It was so nice to get into the woods for a few days.  I love the air up there and the cooler nights, it was a great chance to make family memories!
