On A Hot Summer’s Day You’re Sure To Love A Visit To Arizona’s Famously Cold Lake Made Of Snow
Let’s face it: it can get too hot to hike into far reaching places of Arizona in the heat of the season. So, where can you go in Arizona on a hot summer’s day to cool off and actually enjoy a day outdoors? How about a lake made of snow?
Willow Springs Lake is located immediately off of AZ-260 (Payson-Herber Highway) 23 miles east of Payson. The site is open year-round, even for ice fishing in the wintertime. Access is free. Learn more on the official website of the U.S. Forest Service, and see more images on the Willow Springs Lake Facebook page.
Disclaimer: During the monsoon season, some rain water that’s never been frozen may fall into Willow Springs Lake.
