Mogollon Rim thunderstorm~That's My World~081611

Yesterday started out perfectly clear in Scottsdale.  As we were driving up the road to the Mogollon Rim, however, thunderheads were developing.  We arrived at our rented cabin about 10:30 a.m. and by 11:30, we had our first thunderstorm and rain of the day.  It was so refreshing to just sit on the back patio and listen to the rain and smell it. We took an afternoon drive over to Show Low to buy groceries for the week and this is what we saw on the way back.  This is the area of one of the many fires in this region.  The 2002 Rodeo-Chedesky fire was the largest in Arizona's history until this year's Wallow fire. The Rodeo-Chedesky fire was actually two separate ones that eventually combined into one. Tomorrow we are driving out to Alpine, which is near where the Wallow fire burned this July.  Thunderstorms are forecast for the week here, so I'll be taking more photos of the thunderheads.

  1. Cheryl Ann, that photo is just breathtaking when you enlarge it! Wonderful!I have only been up on the Mogollon rim once when Gus and I went to Payson for our anniversary a few years ago. I hope you have a great time. We visited Tonto Natural bridge back then but it was a very hot day which made it not so much fun.

  3. That must be nice...it cannot seem to rain in Abq, but it IS cooling off faster every evening, so that *almost* compensates. Enjoy your time in the high part of AZ!
