Is THIS in Arizona?

Yes , this is in Arizona.
The Mormon Mountain Trail (#58) leads to the 8,449' summit of Mormon
Mountain west of the lake. Mormon Mountain (seen here) lies within a forest of Ponderosa pine, mixed conifers and aspen. At a number of places along
the route, openings in the forest canopy provide long distance views of
600-acre Mormon Lake and the grassy flats and forest-covered hills that surround it.
In drought years, Mormon Lake soon becomes "Mormon Meadow." At the
viewpoint where I took this photo, there's also a view of the San
Francisco Peaks 25+ miles to the north.
Here's a shot from this same viewpoint in late winter.
