Lost in the Granite Dells

The Granite Dells spill into Watson Lake reservoir.

Several folks insisted the great hiking through unusual rock formations (know as Granite Dells) just outside the city of Prescott, Arizona was not to be missed. We packed our lunch, filled our water bottles and set off over the hill to see what all the fuss was about.

We began our walk along the Peavine Trail.
A network of trails wrapped around, through and sometimes over the unusually shaped Granite Dells.

These granite boulders were formed 1.4 billion years ago, slowly exposed and shaped by erosion and weathering. Wandering through this geologic wonderland is like entering another world.

We loved the walking, but finding a shady spot for lunch wasn’t easy.

  3. We loved the Dells when we visited Prescott in January 2018. So beautiful in the morning and late afternoon.
