camping at dogtown lake in williams, arizona

Recently, we camped at Dogtown Lake in Williams, Arizona. Such a therapeutic and seriously  great experience! We accepted an invitation joining our little-known neighbors. While the excursion could have been a disaster with virtual newcomers, we had such an AMAZING time! That husband guy and I SO enjoyed getting to know a bunch of super-cool people. You know how there’s all this, “step outside the box” and “be open to new experiences” chatter shuffled around all the time? Well, we did just that. And now we’re proud supporters of how opening yourself up can work out and create amazing memories and cherished friendships. I’m grateful for the chance to know new people better – especially ones who live so close-by – and to experience Dogtown Lake once again.

Williams, Arizona is a gorgeous place. Sheep left out to pasture, deer, elk, hawks, squirrels, and honestly, way more wildlife than I’m accustomed to on a camping trip “up north.” It’s been years since we wandered this direction, but we’ll definitely go back. And now, some photos if you’d like to see:

We took a day trip to Sycamore Point in Williams to check out the “mini Grand Canyon.” Gorgeous, and SO worth the effort, dust, and drive!dogtown lake in williams, arizona paintedposies.comdogtown lake in williams, arizona paintedposies.comdogtown lake in williams, arizona paintedposies.comdogtown lake in williams, arizona paintedposies.comdogtown lake in williams, arizona paintedposies.comdogtown lake in williams, arizona paintedposies.com

You’re all smart enough to know I couldn’t resist taking photos of the humans and pups involved with our trip. While I can’t show off the many great portraits I took (I really need to bring along release forms everywhere I go – or at least ask permission *gawsh!*). Here are a few of the cute pictures I captured:

Yes, I distorted that cute little gnome’s face above so as not to violate any privacy laws. Let’s focus on that beanie for a minute, and the little hands grasping his shirt <insert heart eyed emoji here>. Moving on to Joe’s ax throwing skills? OMG. <3 And the pups names? Harley and Mack. Sadly, we didn’t take Jones on this trip. But! We certainly intend on bringing him next time so he can play with these two rascals!
