Yet More Reasons Why I Live in Mesa, Arizona! My Sunday Speechless PHOTO!!

As many of you know, I live and I work in Mesa, Arizona. I am minutes from two  lakes, a short trip to mountains where cooler weather is available during the warm summer months - all within a two to three hour drive. Whether we drive east through Superior, Miami and Globe north, or north through Payson, or west and then north to Flagstaff, there's never a lack of places to see and spectacular views in Arizona! Being an "almost" native, there's very few places I haven't explored in our beautiful state.

Recently, on a trip north - two hours and 40 minutes from our home in Mesa - we happened upon Rainbow Lake near Show Low and Lakeside in the White Mountains. It's a fishing lake, and absolutely beautiful. I LOVE the clouds shadowing and reflecting in the water!

Rainbow lake looks as though it is in the mountains and it might have fish.  Nice pic.

I think I live in San Ramon CA for similar reasons to your selection for Mesa. In 2-3 hours I can be in so many different lovely places with different climates. Northern CA is a wonderful place to live...but AZ ranks high on my list.

Thanks for the reminder.  I often think of Arizona as a big dry place without water.

Your dream maybe coming true, we are working on the details, but my sister-in-law is about to have twins and you are only about 10 hours south from her house in Utah, then we may come back through California and up I-5.
