'Tis The Season
November 1, 2021
Oh, the views: spectacular! Thank you, Margie Anderson, for some fantastic photos of vistas here in Arizona, and on our "Western Wildlife" page, we salute another incredible photographer, George Andrejko, Arizona Game & Fish Department, who has some tips for taking pictures of wildlife.
With so many negatives confronting us, usually from the media, there is such good news to celebrate here in the Southwest —
We have family outings to enjoy as outdoor fans cut their own Christmas trees. We have the incredibly beautiful holiday lighted-boat parades on Tempe Town Lake, in Lake Havasu City, and on San Diego Bay. (Jim and I have enjoyed all of them and hope you have too or will soon.) Go online to find many more than the three we have featured — 'tis the season!
So, without further adieu, we here at Western Outdoor Times/Arizona Boating & Watersports wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving and joy as you enter the wonderful season ahead.
