Onto the 2nd edition of summer fun that never made it onto le blog. There's lots of things that don't make sense in this world. For example:
Really hard math.
...and also, Potato Lake.
I'd never been to, nor heard of, Potato Lake in Arizona until last month. I wanted to go some place new over the weekend so I picked up my handy dandy "Water Edition" of Arizona Highways Magazine (which, if you live in AZ do yourself a favor and buy this Edition every summer. You won't regret it) and stumbled upon Potato Lake.
Potato Lake doesn't make sense cause umm, this is a lake??
I guess it used to be like, a lake lake, but there was some issues or changes in the drainage or water flow or something causing it to shrink significantly in size over time. I didn't read all the back story like Nate did, I was just like "Woooo day trip! Let's goooo!" So that's what we did. We loaded up the dogs and made the drive up north for the day.
1.) I love rain
2.) I love rain a lot
3.) 59 degrees in August???
As soon as we let the dogs out of the truck Maycee, ignoring all commands, made a bee-line for the water line which conveniently was also suuuuper muddy. So she got in trouble and had to be washed off before she could get back in the truck.
But even despite the rain and Maycee being a bad girl and getting mud all over the inside of the truck, Potato Lake - while its name is certainly confusing and possibly false advertisement, it was such a fun day. Some things may not make sense, but they still make for a lot of fun.
