Scouring Mogollon Rim Country



Always so close to finding a new area with pocketed roofs, instead there are endless blank roofs for miles. Gates swing tomorrow, closing the forest roads for winter, further exploration will have to be put on hold until spring. Time for trips to Red Rocks, Bishop and Hueco...











Blimp Roof, likely the most spectacular limestone roof in Northern AZ, located south of winslow a long way down the 99 into Willow Canyon.
