Prescott Area Lakes

  • Granite Basin Lake Prescott Arizona (map)

Monday, October 28th

Trip will begin at Granite Basin Lake, a small reservoir near the Granite Basin Wilderness in Prescott. Gigantic stacked boulders somehow fit together securely enough to make a mountain that rebounds sound off its cliffside that would put the acoustics at Gammage Auditorium to shame. Majestic and breathtaking, this scenic lake has a fun mix of classic riparian cottonwoods, willows, and sycamores surrounded by juniper and pine. Next stops will be visiting both Willow and Watson lakes, both of which can have waterbirds in the thousands this time of year. Birds that we will be looking for will include ducks, jays, woodpeckers, warblers and raptors. Difficulty: 1, limit 11 in three cars. Bring water and snacks. Car pool from Phoenix, leaving at 6:00 am.

Leader: Dara Vasquez.
