5/11-5/13/15 A Look at the Grounds

(Show Low, AZ)

I’d like to start this post with, “The wind had stopped!”, but I can’t.  It is relentless.  We’re being told several more weeks.  We’re not happy campers.  We cannot for the life of us figure out what the attraction is in this area.

I’m going to use this time to show you around a little bit.

I posted this picture once before but I’ll start with it again.  Here is an overview of the main complex.

This is the first building you come to when you come onto the property.  This is the admin building.  This is where the board members and administrative people spend their time.  This is also the building that guests register in and visitors get passes.

The main reception room.

To get into the park one must either put in a code or be admitted by the gate keeper.  The gatekeepers are volunteers from the park but they don’t start until June 1st.

The first thing we noticed when we arrived was that it was green.

…..and that was welcomed.

There are ponds here and there around the park.  They have fountains in the middle but they are not running this day.

I love this tree with its bench underneath next to yet another pond.

This is one of the buildings around the complex.


This is the Back 40.  It’s a garden area with a walking path and garden swings and lots of flowers.




Next time we’ll go in the buildings and get a more in depth look at more of the grounds.
