This is one of the annual trips we undertake once the Rim Road up on the Mogollon Rim near Payson, AZ opens up after winter. It’s always a good, relaxing time.
Nick and I were the first ones to arrive and secure our favorite spot.
Nick is trying to flex his Taco. Cute.
Trooper is needing some love.
