Views from the Mountains

Here's a few of the photos from our trip to Greer. It's a really beautiful little town in the mountains about four hours from Phoenix. We came here a lot when I was a kid. The place has changed a lot, but is still a cute little mountain town. This trip was my anniversary gift to Shawn...a couple of days spent fishing and a fly fishing lesson. We enjoyed cooler weather, gorgeous views, time together and lots of relaxation. Here's a view from the front porch of our room:


This is the main lodge at Greer Lodge. There are a handful of rooms and a restaurant with perfect patio dining. The lodge looks out on the Little Colorado River and three private ponds.


This is the view beyond the ponds at Greer Lodge. Those are private houses. How nice would that be?


I woke up around 7:30 our first morning in Greer and Shawn was nowhere to be found. I peeked out the window of our room and here's what I saw:


We had two trout ponds right outside our window. Shawn pretty much rolled out of bed, threw on some clothes and a hat, grabbed his fishing pole and commenced his day. He spent most of his time fishing and caught at least a dozen fish. He actually caught his first fish in the river within the first hour of being in town. It was raining at the time, so I didn't have the camera. Instead, I give you his second fish:


Here's what I spent most of my time doing:


I enjoyed the weather, read a book and a half, take some photos, took a couple of naps (a rare treat for me) and managed to get a v shaped sunburn from the v neck of my long sleeved shirt. Here's a few more of my favorite pictures:
