N and I drove up to an area just outside of Payson to camp and hike Saturday and Sunday. We had a lovely time and enjoyed the cool air and amazing scenery. It's a magnificent area bordering the Arizona's Mogollon Rim --Rim Country, they call it. They area is surrounded by three national forests, Tonto, Sitegreaves, and Coconino, making it a perfect place to hike and camp to your heart's content.
I wish I had taken more pictures of the incredible views, but we mostly saw those as we were driving...the few I got are of closer views, mostly our hike at Horton Creek.
