The Granite Dells is a 380-acre park that is centered around Watson Lake and is located just north of Prescott. It has miles of rugged hiking trails, and rock climbers love the granite cliffs for top-roping and lead climbing. It is also the home of Tri-City Prep Rowing Crew, a local high school team, which is the only one in Northern Arizona. 
I spent the late afternoon scrambling up, down, and in between the varied granite boulders, seeking the highest vantage points and then down to the water edge, which had many ducks, geese, blue herons, and two islands comprised of a gulp of Double-crested Cormorants.
