Woods Canyon Lake

As summer overtakes Fountain Hills, the heat comes, and we retreat inside. The beautiful thing about the landscape of Arizona is its diversity. You can find a comfortable retreat any time of the year.  But for those eager to get outside during the summer and be one with nature, that usually means traveling to higher elevations. So, we recommend that you plan that kind of summer- one filled with excitement, big plans, and endless possibilities.  One spot to discover is Woods Canyon Lake.
