Roosevelt Lake, Arizona
As a southern Arizona reservoir, Roosevelt Lake's water level
fluctuates quite a bit. At high levels hundreds, if not thousands, of
mesquites and other desert trees along the shore may become flooded.
In the spring the surrounding desert is also a good place to see
wildflowers. The photos below of Owl's Clover, Lupins and Brittlebush
were taken in April 2020, less than a year after the Woodbury
Fire "devastated" the hillsides just south of Roosevelt Lake.
