Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"
Ice Skating is also here a popular sport and a popular recreation.Have a nice sunday Sharon.
Skating with the temperature at 22C just doesn't sound right! Strange how different the place looks in daylight.
Wonder if it will continue to be open when the temps are 115?
Finally, the ponds are frozen for real in these parts now.
I would never have thought there would be an outdoor ice rink! I wonder why it's so lonely in the daytime hours.
wow, who knew. skating in phoenix?
You have ice skating and Julie has a boat dock in your photos today. And this is the desert?
How fun! Reminds me of the one they used to have at Metro Center.
How fun! Ice skating in the desert.
You're right about the expense. We had an outdoor rink, also, for a couple of years, but it proved to be too costly so the city fathers shut it down. That was too bad as a lot of kids had a lot of fun!
It might not be ice. There's another one down in Queen Creek at Schnepf's Farm that is made out of a synthetic. But, I do believe there was a real ice rink in Tempe for a number of years. Winter time only, of course.
I like the colours in your night shot!
I keep meaning to get down to the Crown Center Ice rink, but since it is right by my office, I hate going that way on the weekends. On the weekdays after work, I have places to go and don't quite get a photo taken. I like the shadows and light on the night shot.
Love the first shot Sharon, it definitely looks better with all the people and their shadows!! It's slike a little frozen 'oasis' in the middle of the desert!!
I have never tried skating on ice. And I will probably never will now... :-)
