A Question of Balance
Manzanita and oak clog up a bouldering path in
Stewart Pocket east of Payson, AZ. The pocket or basin
is ringed with crumbling ridges consisting of granite
boulders, the formation seen here. It became
exposed to the surface, and through time has weathered
into the remarkable geologic features seen today.
There is one trail extending through this area of the
Tonto National Forest, called the Boulder Trail. I saw some puddles of water here and there, but summer here is ruthless and hot. Please leave early and bring water when visiting this section of central Arizona.

..you could get up on that rock and balance on it Larry? I can see it swaying from side to side in my mind. That would make a really cool picture even better!

Ha, ha! Hello, Stephen. No, the man
doesn't PAY me enough to do the swaying,
as it's a question of balance. Besides
being underfunded, this recent expedition
to the "boulders" area was lacking a
photographer. I will consider your
cool suggestion, however. -LARRY :)
