On May 11, 2013 my daughter and I swam an open water race at Canyon Lake about 60 miles East of Phoenix. There is a very nice little beach area under the shade of trees that my wife and I plan to go back to for an early morning swim and breakfast that should be beautiful in these summer months. If you are into swimming, the cove is very pretty and removed from the boating. Open Water Swimming returns to Canyon Lake on September 15, 2013. If it is set up as it was on May 11th there will be a 1,000 meter course with races at three distances (4,000 / 2,000 / 1,000 meters). Julie challenged me to swim all three races and we did swim all three but when it comes to speed ... Julie is the competitor ... I'm just the participant.
