Just a Photoset from my Camping Trip earlier this Month...I did Separate Logs for the Birding and Hiking Portions of this Trip...The Weather was pretty Interesting this Time and provided some Quick Photo Opportunities here and there. Although the Weather was probably worse on the Edge of the Mogollon Rim, where I was Camped, it certainly made for some Cool Landscape Shots...

Day 1: Birding a couple of Places on the Way up. Camped on the Edge of the Rim about 1/2 Mile from the Drew TH....
Day 2: Hiked the Drew/Highline/See Loop. The Tropical Storm forecasted caught me about an Hour before my Hike finished.
Day 3: Almost constant Rain with just a few Breaks. Visibility was nil a lot of the Day. Decided I really didn't want to Backpack with nonot and The N in this kind of Weather and cancelled on them. Was hoping it would clear out that Night and I could still Meet up with them for 1 Night in Chevelon...Spent most of the Day Reading and Playing Solitaire in the Escape...It was Cold too, never got above 56 Degrees all Day...Cleared up just a Tad for a little Sunset Action...
Day 4: Although it looked like the Storm might be Breaking the Night before, it was not to be...Raining Hard at 6 A.M. and just would not Quit...Finally got a small Break with more to come, about Noon, so threw in the Towel, Packed up Camp while I could and started to Meander down the Rim, pulling out my Camera briefly here and there. Was Pouring Rain coming off the Rim...Broke out my Waterproof Camera for a few Shots...Halfway down, it quit Raining and I stopped a few Places for Photos...It started to really act like it was Clearing out so I did a little Exploring on some Forest Roads before taking in Sunset in Payson...

Not my Best Trip, but I got a Good Hike in, got some nice Birding in and got some nice Storm Photos so I can't complain...I think I still Prefer Monsoons to a steady 40 Hour Rain though.... :sweat:
