Willow Springs Lake Day Trip

Mark Your Calendar for Sunday,  July 24th!

It has become a tradition for Life Discovery to make an annual trip each summer to Willow Springs Lake.

This lovely lake is on the Mogollon Rim in northern Arizona–a 2+ hour drive from Phoenix. Drive up and make a lazy day of it in the cooler weather. Swim, fish, hike, kayak, or just hang out. Bring watercraft if you have it. It’s an all-day event.

Other Things to Bring: a chair, camera, drinking water, your own lunch, snacks to share, sunscreen, swimsuit, towel, a hat, water shoes &/or walking shoes, and sweatshirt. All are welcome! Call Elly with questions at 623-297-1110.
