I had such an enjoyable and relaxing seven day visit this past July at my favorite AZ Mogollon Rim campsite (at 7435ft) that I decided to do it again in August (from Wed-8/23 to Tues-8/29/17) :)

For this August trip I invited a good friend (from East Mesa) and her partner (from Payson) whom I had originally met from my earlier 2005-2006 AZ camping/hiking days as an active member of Arizona Outdoor Travel Club (AOTC). AOTC & HAZ-blk and I have continued to be good friends but with her very active outdoor (local & worldwide) travel schedule, I was not able until this August to find a camping period that fit both our schedules.

As has been the case for the last few visits and this trip no exception, I had planned more tinkering around camp, R&R, and good eats cooking than area day hiking, but we still managed to do a couple nice area off-trail loop hikes:
[ Barbershop Cyn Upper - Merritt Draw Upper Loop ]
[ Bear Canyon Upper - West Bear Canyon Loop ]

For this Mogollon Rim monsoon season there was less daily/nightly rain than I had on my previous July'17 week visit. Both July and August trips provided moderate daily temps and comfortable nightly sleeping being serenaded by bugling elk and howling coyotes in close Barbershop Canyon and Merritt Draw.
