We don’t often associate the words ruggedness and beauty in the same sentence, that is until you visit the “Granite Dells,” located just a few miles from historic downtown Prescott, Arizona! Father-Time has created what I like to call “rugged beauty” in the Granite Dells. Over an estimated 1.4 billion years the wind and water have eroded the exposed granite bedrock and boulders to what we see today, massive-lumpy rock formations, great for rock climbers and photographers alike! You can easily spend a few hours exploring the trails and boulders surrounding Lakes Watson and Willow. So, next time you are in Prescott, head to the Granite Dells for a mini-adventure and follow one of the many trails that weave their way around the two lakes or just climb a granite rock formation with a cup of coffee and enjoy the views!
