Great pics of the peaks...

Yeah, this is what central Arizona is all about! Was this photo taken near Rye? HEY, Payson & AZ-87 were pretty packed & crazy during the Labor Day holiday. Lots of campers were out & about - I often wonder how many of them actually climb peaks. "Hats off to you," for showcasing your great pics on Summitpost!

Thanks!

I took this photo pulling off of the Beeline a bit north of Rye. It was where the road was still on the downhill - I happened to see a side road that led to some fencing, so I hopped it and walked out to an open promontory. The day was crystal clear. Seems every other time I drive by Mazatzal it's cloudy or the sun is behind it...
