As we near the end of Spring 2017 and summer beginning on June 20th, I took one more short tour of our White Mountain forests. Summer has its beauty, Spring has its own. You don’t have to be a camper to enjoy the beauty the White Mountains of Arizona offers. Visiting and vacationing motel travelers can equally delight in the great view of wild life and landscape on easy to navigate open roads, paved and serviced.
My wife and I took a short trip up to Hawley Lake, then on service roads to Christmas Tree Lake area. Wild turkeys, horses and range cattle were plentiful as were a variety of birds, and owls. Had we more time and stayed a little longer the meadows would be populated with elk or deer, perhaps some bear cubs playing in the distant, but photographic mountain meadows we drove by.
While the Cool White Mountains provide great scenic delights, it offers visitors a cool, dry and fresh environment, close enough for weekend getaways or a full-throttle vacation.
