Today Nancy and I drove to Fountain Hills to take part in the Fountain Hills St. Patrick's Day Festival. It was a fun event and we had some green beer as we watched the fountain spew out green water from the green lake. Fountain Hills is about 30 minutes from Nancy's and I think that it is quite a charming little town. After spending some time at the festival we visited a small art display near the festival and the walked around town for a while.
The return drive took us thru Tonto National Forest where wildflowers are in full blast. Several of the pictures show these colors well. We also stopped at an overlook which provided some pretty nice pictures of the Salt River and surrounding environment.
Finally, we stopped at several areas where people are allowed to boondock for $6 per night. Both of these places are in the Salt River Recreation Area and are located close to the Salt River. Both were pretty busy, but there was room for more campers at both of them.
Another great day spent with Nancy.
