biken201,

It is always good to see someone familiar with the areas one frequents. We have camped many times along the Mogollon Rim as well:









Happy Camping Everyone!

I need to start taking more pics like you Glenn. We are in spots like this all the time I forget how great it is until I see your pics.

My generator (Yamaha 2400) will not consistently power our AC, so if it is so warm that we need it we just drive a little farther to a higher elevation that has the temps we desire. The nice thing about Arizona is that there are lots of "out of the way" spots that have fire roads that will easily accommodate most 5ers. I could have easily gotten a 5er to any of the spots where my pictures were taken.

what elevation were you at. i seem to recall flagstaff is at or near 5000 ft and nice in the summer. i never lived there, but passed thru many times as otr driver. a little west of flagstaff on 40 it seemed to rise some in elevation, and become more wooded. always liked northern arizona.

Flagstaff is at around 7000' and is definitely pretty nice during the summer (compared to Phoenix). The Rim pics are at around 7000', but the desert (winter) pics are at about 1100' elevation.

We generally boondock in areas where the AC is not needed. Living in Phoenix with 115 degree days during the summer, when I "camp" I want cool temperatures. If the AC is needed, we have 2 Honda EU2000i generators with a parallel kit which will run the AC without problem. When using the AC is the only time we need to run both generators, otherwise one will suffice.

We used to enjoy camping during the summer in the White Mountains of AZ in the Big Lake, Alpine, Hannagan Meadow area before the 520,000 acre wild fire burned much of the area in 2011. It is around 9000' elevation and rarely gets above 80 degrees during the summer.

Those are some cool pics!
I can't even get our 5er in some camp sites because of the approach angles. I don't think with 3 kids we could boondock and stay sane, but its cool seeing what others do!
