A last minute trip to the Mogollon Rim to do the Cabin Loop. The loop is a summer time favorite and is always an enjoyable time. The potential for monsoon activity threatened us Saturday but we managed to escape dry. Since Phoenix was scolding hot the rim country was also plagued with temps in the 90's. We the exception of the heat the trip was successful. If you want to explore the cabin loop check out the photos below and then head over to hikearizona.com for the details.
The Fourth of July weekend came at a time when most the public land in AZ was shut down due to wildfire conditions. Our first plan was to head to New Mexico, specifically the Carson National Forest. Fire restrictions squashed that so we pointed towards Taos, but that too was curtailed. As a final backup planned we rolled the dice and headed towards the Weminuche Wilderness outside of Durango, Co. Even with the current fire going on we got lucky and had an eventful trip.
