The Mogollon Rim is an escarpment cutting across the state of Arizona for approximately 200 miles, starting in northern Yavapai County and running eastward, ending near the border with New Mexico. It forms the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau in Arizona. Its central and most spectacular portions are characterized by high cliffs of limestone and sandstone. The escarpment rises over a mile higher than the land to its south, making it an ideal place to beat the Phoenix heat in summer. One of my favorite places to camp, I've spent many, many days on the Rim…and taken many, many photos.
The Mogollon Rim is the southern edge of the great Colorado Plateu. Millions of years ago, the Colorado Plateau gradually rose, forming the Grand Canyon (the Colorado River was like a knife held still over a rising cake, cutting into the Plateau).

I've camped and day-visited the Rim Road that runs along the edge of the Mogollon Rim many times. But this time was the first on which we were able to bring Ella, my granddog. Ella has been camping many times, but only once before with Keith and me, and never here at Campground 9350.
