This is a cool granite boulder found along E. Granite Dells Road
about 5 miles southeast of Payson, Arizona. I was coming back from a hike
in the Stewart Pocket area. Suddenly, I saw several Mule deer browsing
south of the road, and I got out of my vehicle to find them.
Wouldn't you believe it? Just as I was getting close to the deer for a
picture, a dirt bike (motorcycle) zips by on the road. Scares them
completely off into the wilderness! By the time I got back to my vehicle,
some drops of rain began falling from a summer monsoon thunderstorm.
