New Campsite Near Payson Arizona Discovered!

New campsite for me that is!

just to the east of Payson,Az on Highway 260 there is a road that drops south about a half a mile, get back in there and you can pull right up near a retention pond for the animals, is room for 4 or 5 vehicles if they like each other or other turns of the road you could take to get more solitude, spent the past 4 days there in the company of some other Vandwellers, and had a really nice stay just taking life easy and gathering around the fire every morning.

some good walking both in the woods and on the trails in the area, as well as some great potential spots to hike into!  Since I'm working my way toward backpacking, I intend to do just that before winter hits, and I wont be at all surprised if I tent camp at this site again.

Now, downside.. sadly some folks (I'm assuming from Payson) have come out here and illegally dumped yard waste in the area.. I've decided that each time I go there I have a mission to clean it up!!  As long as fire restrictions are NOT in place, when I visit, I will be burning all the crap that comes with civilization and trying to help restore the beauty that should be there!
