When most people think about Arizona, they think about sweltering heat or desert wastelands. But what they don’t realize is that Arizona is a beautiful place with a variety of natural environments from the hot, dry desert to the cool, mountainous pine forests. If you’re looking for a cooler place to visit, then the Rim Country and surrounding open wilderness is where you need to be. The Mogollon Rim pronounced “muggy-own” or “muggy-on”, is a mountain range that extends 400 miles and marks the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau in Arizona. Here you will find the largest ponderosa pine forest in the United States, with wonderfully cool weather, awesome mountain views, and the unmistakable smells of Pine, Juniper, and Oak. Take in the majestic beauty of The Rim and surrounding wilderness as well as one of the most unique natural landmarks in the world, The Tonto Natural Bridge. This truly is a visitor’s paradise.
