Camping below the Mazatzal Mountains

RV camping below the majestic Mazatzal Mountains west of Payson, Arizona in the Tonto National Forest. Summers can be hot around here - thankfully the East Verde River is nearby when you need to cool off.

RV on the Edge?

Yes, that's an RV! Camped right on the edge of the Mogollon Rim near Woods Canyon Lake, Arizona. There are many spectacular campsites here in the Sitgreaves National Forest, and this is just one of them. No wonder this is the most popular area for camping in the whole state of Arizona!

Wild Strawberry on the Rim

Wild strawberry in See Canyon above Christopher Creek on the Mogollon Rim, Arizona. They're small strawberries and I didn't find many...but boy were they packed with flavor! This was a very nice hike along See Canyon Trail 184 which I turned into an all day hike by doing a loop connecting with the General George Crook Trail, Highline Trail, and Drew Trail.

Elk Up Close

I've seen countless elk on the Mogollon Rim, but never up close like this! For 3 mornings in a row, at the crack of dawn, I was visited by this family of elk at my campsite in the Sitgreaves National Forest. Here's a look at elk in the wild, with a camper thrown into the mix!

Short Canyon Video

Short Canyon Trail takes you on a tour of three distinct landscapes: Mojave Desert, Great Basin, and Sierra Nevada. Magnificent scenery. After a wet winter, spring wildflowers paint the canyon, which lies within Owens Peak Wilderness near Ridgecrest, California in the Eastern Sierra.

Doorstep to Heaven

Looking out over the edge of the Mogollon Rim at Milk Ranch Point near Pine, Arizona. Here at the southwestern edge of the Colorado Plateau the land drops 2,000 feet from one forest, the Coconino National Forest, to another, the Tonto National Forest. I was up at 4am to get this shot. It was beautiful, especially with the many swallows performing their aerobatics over the cliff side.

RV Camping below Mogollon Rim

RV camping below the Mogollon Rim near Pine, Arizona. Great campsite here off Conrol Road and almost directly opposite the Red Rock Spring trail, which connects with the Highline National Recreation Trail. The views ain't too shabby either! That's Milk Ranch Point in the background.

Mazatzal Mountains Sunset

A wild sunset while backpacking in the Mazatzal Mountains and wilderness area near Payson, Arizona. This was one tough backpacking trip. I found out firsthand that many trails had been washed out by past floods. Fires left many fallen logs over the trail. The vegetation is thick and I encountered many razor sharp barbed bushes. It's a jungle in there...wilderness it surely is! I'll always look at the experience with fond memories though...because I didn't fall off a cliff, get eaten by a bear, or get sliced to pieces by the plant life! But it was close!

Mogollon Rim Sunset

Sunset from the edge of the Mogollon Rim near Woods Canyon Lake, Arizona. This picture was taken right from my campsite. Usually I have to hike for hours to find a view like this. Here I just stepped out my front door!

Spiral Tree

Nature, the ultimate sculptor. Even a torched tree can be beautiful. Found this "spiral tree" in the Tonto National Forest while mountain biking a jeep road below the Mogollon Rim.
