As we get older, birthdays have started to become just another day. How old are we again? 29? …for the 2nd time in a row? 3rd? Anyway, I decided this time around we were going to pack my birthday weekend with adventures along the Mogollon Rim near Payson, Arizona just to make sure these middle-aged bones are in good working order –and it was an excellent birthday weekend!
We brought our mountain bikes and rode over the Rim Lakes Vista Trail, which has been extended since we explored it 2 years ago.
The Rim Lakes Vista Trail is well maintained, partially paved, and easy when hiked. Mountain bikes are another ballgame. The paved parts are easy and there’s little elevation gain to fight against. Just be prepared to carry the bikes over sections as seen in the following photos.
Birthday girl is happy. Happy wife, happy life.
