Lake Powell, AZ
Personally, I am solar-powered. If the sun doesn’t shine, neither do I. That is the reason why we moved here in 1985.
We are originally from Michigan, but have lived in Mississippi, California, Oklahoma, Washington, and the Village of Schaesberg, Netherlands (near Heerlen in Limburg). On our way to Seattle in August 1980, we stopped here to visit relatives and never forgot the blue skies and sunshine. Since that time, many of our relatives have moved here as well.
If you have never been to Arizona, you probably think it is nothing but dry desert and cactus, heat and tumbleweed. Not so! We have lakes, mountains, (with snow in the winter months for those who miss it) and also during the winter, lots and lots of golfers and snowbirds (traffic). Yes, we do occasionally hit 120° in the summer.
If you are thinking about moving to the Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley areas and want an award-winning realtor to find you a dream home, go here – Arizona’s Best Real Estate – because Kelly and her business partner are truly Arizona’s Best and nicest agents.
There are plenty of lakes and some good fishing…husband Randi has held the Canyon Lake Large Mouth Bass record since April of 1997!
