Out Behind Payson where the wild things ought to be   3 comments

On Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015, I drove 100 miles to eat dinner with my sister. Afterward, I got my brother-in-law to take me out for a ride in his rail. By Crom, that’s one tough buggy, it went up and down trails I wouldn’t want to tackle on foot. I got some pictures of the Arizona back country, and I’ll share them with you, but these are the tame pictures. I couldn’t take pix of the really wild fun stuff, because I was hanging on for dear life.  Woooooooooo hooooooooooooo!

Granite Dells. Part of my ride was dominated by huge granite boulders. Trolls love this!

What you don’t realize in this picture is that I’m looking almost straight down, not straight ahead on the flat.

  1. Let’s see if WordDepress will let me post.

    The only Payson town I know is in southern Utah, which is even more ridiculously hot – not as hot as St George, but still enough to make Hell (or the classic Greek version) comfortable by comparison.

    That said, there are types of beauty and grace in desert mountains which just cannot be found anywhere else. And the mountains are cooler.

  2. There is also a Payson in central Arizona on the edge of the Mogollon Rim. Pine forests and rugged mountains are the main features in the landscape here.

    • This I learned from your travelogue documentary. Though it means a long way to go to eat with your sister. Wouldn’t a fork and spoon be more convenient?
