Arizona S.C.A.R. Swim Challenge @ Saguaro, Canyon, Apache and Roosevelt Lakes
Dec 3 all-day

In search of a unique open water swim challenge in Arizona, the four reservoirs on the Salt River provide that unique opportunity.   If Jack Kerouac wrote a story about the Dharma Bums swimming from dam to dam across a series of lakes in the rugged desert wild, this may have been the inspiration.  The brainchild of Mesa, Arizona attorney Kent Nicholas, S.C.A.R. stands for Saguaro, Canyon, Apache and Roosevelt lakes.  It's "a bit of a rogue swim" because there were no permits, licenses, insurance, coast guard support, law enforcement approval, or any other "permission" sought from anyone.   They hiked, boated, swam, laughed and swam again without letting the obstacles and hurdles of modern life prevent them from swimming more than 40 miles in a beautiful environment.
