A Walk in the Woods... (a photo journey)

The following is a photo journey of my time up at the Mogollon Rim near Payson, Arizona this past weekend.

For those of you not familiar, the Mogollon Rim is a 200+ mile plateau that makes it's way through central Arizona. Much of the plateau is 5000-6000 feet above sea level with some portions reaching close to 8000 feet above sea level. The plateau is home to a vast assortment of wildlife and it provides a scenic and temperature escape from the city of Phoenix in the valley below, which is often 30-40 degrees warmer even though it is only about an hour and half drive away.

My picture journey of the Mogollon Rim:

The scenery is nice and all, but this is the real reason I visit the lakes...

Any fisherman out there that can relate? Hope you enjoyed the images. If you ever get the chance I recommend visiting the Mogollon Rim and Payson, Arizona. Very beautiful places with lots of things to do.

Live well my friends!

Looks like a peaceful place to cast your line. Catch anything worthwhile?

Nope, unfortunately I didn't catch a thing at this lake... However, I caught a couple nice ones in the streams up there... Stream fishing is my real love anyways. :)

Too bad - at least the weather was nice! I prefer to be on a boat, bobbing around when fishing, but come the warmer weather i'll try my hand at a few streams and rivers I think...

It is so beautiful. I wish I go there and float on row boat while I drink some coffee with my loved ones. It will be so peaceful and serene. Thank you for sharing your journey and nice photo with us!

I really do love the pictures. It's a beautiful lake and scenery. Also I hope the fishing was relaxing for you!

However, with my new take on voting that I started today, I do have to give a downvote simply because of what I see as be disproportionate rewards at this time. The $72 with 26 views just seems too much in my opinion. I hope you understand.

I've not been yet, because I don't have any rods at the moment, but the Isar looks very good for fishing.

Beautiful scenery, shallow pebble beds, things like trout, grayling, chub floating around...

Yep - it flows right through the city of Munich as well, and i spotted a few trout last year while just relaxing by the riverside. So i've got no excuse not to try and hook one...once the weather gets just a little bit warmer ;)

Arizona has so many treasures, careful not to share them all or you will give the secret away! ;)
