What else do you do when it’s over 95 degrees but swim? We headed out to Butcher Jones Recreation Area on Sunday to lounge on inflatables and bask in the sunlight.
Getting there was easy: We first stopped at Walgreens on Thomas and Power roads for a Tonto pass, then drove on Bush Highway to Butcher Jones Road. The beach was a popular place to cool off on Memorial Day weekend.
On the drive back, we admired the colorful sunset amid the desert backdrop.
