Dean and I are spending the summer at the cabin at forest lakes, Arizona.  For those of you that do not know Forest Lakes - we are about 90 miles from Phoenix and 20 to 30 degrees cooler. Forest Lakes is located on the Mogollon Rim at 7600 ft.  We have one of the largest Ponderosa Pine forest in the country.  It is not unusual to have snow here any time during the year.  These pictures were taken on Memorial Day weekend when we had 8-10 inches in 3 days.  This is always a big weekend with a lot of our friends - we had 17 in and around (RV's) the cabin.  so we stayed on the back porch most of the weekend.  
But we did take some hikes in the snow.  

During the month of May we did a road trip back to the midwest to see relatives.  Dean's family had a family reunion in Arkansas.  This is a picture of Dean's two brothers - 
Tom and Richard - and Dean's mother, Marge.  This was the only fish that was caught over the weekend - but it was enough to have a great meal.   

The cabin was very spacious with a huge deck over looking the water.
