Nathaniel Morrison has big plans. At the beginning of the year he completed the construction of an 18-foot wooden sailboat with a small electric motor.

The question he was asked most frequently was where he was going to take it. Thus, the idea of taking it to 30 Arizona lakes in 30 weeks was born as was a plan to document this all in a book. Morrison says, “I’m one-third completed with both the lakes and the book. [However,] my question is, do you know if anyone has ever tried to visit 30 arizona lakes in 30 weeks?” Stay tuned for the answer and Morrison’s completed plans.

Morrison narrowed his lake list by visiting lakes with at least 55 acre feet of water.

Publishers Note – I have lived in Arizona since 1956.  I have always been surprised by people who are not familiar with Arizona when they seem surprised that we have lakes, river and boating in Arizona.  It is always fun to get their impressions after they have visited some of our water oriented recreational facilities.
