The Water Is A Brilliant Blue At Roper Lake, A Refreshing Roadside Stop In Arizona

Despite being a landlocked region, the Grand Canyon State has no shortage of places to cool off when temperatures (inevitably) start getting unbearable. Roper Lake State Park, located off U.S. Route 191, is one such spot, boasting some of the bluest water in Arizona.
