Rim drive 07/12/09
« on: July 13, 2009, 11:02:45 AM »
took a drive down FSR 300 to get out of the heat yesterday. It rained a little towards the end of our drive which dropped to temp down to the high 60s low 70s it was nice. This was the first time we have been up there looking foward to getting back up there to do some camping

horned toad


here we saw a Arizona Black Rattlesnack in the road



he was probably around 36 to 40 inches didn't want to get out he was pretty pissed to see us driving down the road



here is a picture of the rain coming down
.

sounds like a good trip. The Rim is a great place to escape the heat of the valley and do some easy exploring/camping/fishing/relaxing.  8)

Awesome nature shots. Great to see so much green on the cliffsides too.  Love 300 (the road) and camping there's nice too, I've never minded a monsoon on the rim.
I got your "Jeep thing", now it burns when I pee..

I love FR 300. Should have let us know... we played at Pleasant yesterday, but would have loved to join ya instead. (We're always up for hanging with friends).

We didn't even know we were going until we woke up Sunday morning. Next time we will have to actually plan the trip.

We are the same way! No planning needed here! (Ok maybe a little). We'll roll at a moments notice (most of the time).
You just might be surprised... give a text at 5am on a weekend... doesn’t hurt... I'm an early bird anyway (I'll sleep when I'm dead, I always say).
Typically, we might decide the night before, print some maps and hit up Wally-mart for fruit and jerky. Or we might wait till the morning of.

Part of why Wally makes a good play buddy is that we are pretty spontaneous. I try to get most of my homework done during the week so I can be free on the weekend. Trucks are semi-packed most of the time (with stuff for emergencies). We don’t need to bring much. Most of the toys and supplies are at the front of the garage and easy to toss in the trucks. Sometimes we just go for a few hours or a half day. Then we still have time for other things like homework and chores. That's one of the reason we spend so much time up at Pleasant, it's really easy to get to and we don't make a big deal out of going. We were home by noon yesterday, just because of the heat.

But I'm planning for Fat Tire... I got a lot of stuff I need and want to do...

You need a lens with a little more reach for those rattler encounters. I have yet to come across one of these(black) in the wild.
Mostly diamond backs.
Very nice.

Where is the Rim?


And I like the black rattler..............I wouldn't mind seeing one from afar.

And we saw one of those horned toads the other day and couldnt quite figure out what it was.

Where is the Rim?...

The Mogollon (Mug-e-yon) Rim is north of Payson.  From the valley you can get to FR300 by going up SR87 (aka Beeline Highway), or by taking I-17 north to SR260 E (Camp Verde exit).  SR260 merges with SR87 approx 1/2 hour east of Camp Verde.  FR300 is not too far from this intersection.
