Just after sunrise on Woods Canyon Lake

Today we have a nice little view of one of our favorite camping spots, Woods Canyon Lake.   This little gem is about 90 minutes away from the summer heat of Phoenix. 

The summer months in Phoenix are brutal (I know who would of thought) as temps hit 110+ and stay there days on end.  However a short drive will put you up on the Mogollon Rim near Payson.   This area reaches an altitude over 5000 feet and becomes our Antarctic oasis.  Okay it’s not really that cold but you get the idea. Elevation is everything.

With summer fast approaching our family is already looking forward to another great season of camping.  You can bet we will be returning to Woods Canyon for a little “R and R”.

Until next time…
