Five Shots: Clouds on the Rim

Some of our visiting family have never been to Eastern Arizona. Most people assume Arizona looks like the Phoenix landscape.  90 miles north, the Mogollon Rim is one of my favorite spots in this diverse state. Arizona ranks 6th in size among the 50 states. The total area of Arizona is 114,000 sq mi (295,260 sq km), of which land takes up 113,508 sq mi (293,986 sq km) and inland water 492 sq mi (1,274 sq km).  Here are some shots I took kayaking and hiking around the rim. The clouds were colossal. Which photo do you like best?

Woods Canyon Lake, AZ

Just returned from a three-day camping trip at the Mogollon Rim, 30 miles east of Payson, AZ. Nothing like mountain lake trout fishing 7300 feet above sea level. Hiking, Elk in the campground. Percolated coffee at 5:30a.m., hikes on the rim. Kayaking on crystal clear water. All shared with my best friend, Jim. DSC03238
