C A M P I N G   O N   T H E   R I M

campin on the rim, payson az This weekend my husband and I tried out our new tent for the very first time. And we have no complaints. The set-up was fairly quick, and we had absolutely no issues. The design is quietly functional and adorable. I'm seriously in love with all of REI's "Lion" colored products. Which is just a fancy way of saying yellow. ;) As an Arizona native I'm ashamed to say that this was my first time in Payson Arizona as an adult, but it was definitely worth the wait. The Rim Payson Arizona The Rim Payson Arizona When you get to wake up in the morning to looking out over the rim, it really is an awesome experience. It's so refreshing just to experience the quietness of nature. No cars, no people, just the bees and the wind. (I did hear an elk or some type of deer down the cliff side, but I never got to see it). For me, it's so easy to forget how big and beautiful Arizona really is. Looking out over all of that life was such an honor. Camping Payson Arizona Camping Payson Arizona As someone that hadn't many camping experiencing in either my child or adulthood, I can safely say that I've officially got the camp bug. (Camp-bug? Is that a thing? I'm making it a thing). I don't know where we'll go next, but I will definitely keep you posted. This specific area was totally awesome and I can't wait to go back again. But, first, let's see what other places Adam and I are able to check out. Arizona is a big place, and it's pretty gorgeous.

There really weren't any demands on our time as we were out there. Also, shout out to my aunt and uncle who invited us on this trip. They are the best and we wouldn't have known about this spot (or been able to get there) without them (and their four wheel drive). The Rim Payson Arizona Are you local, or ever been to AZ? If so, what are your favorite camping spots? I'd love to try them out! If not in Arizona, I'm open to suggestions all over the world. Adam and I are always down to road trip. And as we make our way visiting places around the globe, it's good to have a list of places to visit and things to do! xo Deanna
