Today we took John's sister Cindy, who is visiting for a week, for a cruise on Saguaro Lake north of Gold Canyon. A few weeks ago we hiked along the lake with friends Barbara and Ron and were looking forward to the cruise. We sailed on the Desert Belle.
The boat seats about 150 people. We picked up sandwiches from the Lakeshore Restaurant next to the marina. We planned to eat them during the cruise, but ending up consuming them while waiting to board.
The scenery on the 10-mile long lake is beautiful.
There are several American bald eagles nesting along the lake. We got a (very distant) view of one of them.
Several of the rock formations have been named. This is the elephant.
It was a fun and beautiful trip. We really recommend it.
