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!

Boondocking on the Rim

RV Boondocking on the Mogollon Rim above Pine, Arizona at a cool 7,200 feet. Not a bad place to spend the summer in Arizona!

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.

Tonto Creek

A rugged canyon along Tonto Creek south of Payson, Arizona in the Tonto National Forest. The creek begins below the Mogollon Rim and eventually reaches the Sonoran Desert and forms the very popular Theodore Roosevelt Lake, northeast of Phoenix.

Snow Storm!

Even a snowbird like me appreciates a change of scenery once in awhile. This April snow shower on the Mogollon Rim left a fresh new landscape to explore. But I didn't complain too much when it all melted the next day!

Superior, Arizona

Superior, Arizona lies east of Phoenix below the dramatic Apache Leap cliff face. There is plenty to see in the area like Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park, the beautiful Tonto National Forest, and the Arizona National Scenic Trail - which I was hiking when I stopped to take this picture.

Tonto Natural Bridge State Park

The largest natural travertine bridge in the world at Tonto Natural Bridge State Park near Payson, Arizona. A waterfall cascades down from the top of the bridge and the tunnel is like an outdoor cave with stalactites and stalagmites. If you're in the area, this is a must see!

Elk in Arizona!

Got lucky capturing this close-up of an elk with my motion-activated camera set up near camp. The elk was out doing some late night snacking below the Mogollon Rim near Pine, Arizona.
