One of the reasons I love most about where I live is that within an hour or two I can be in a completely different climate with completely different scenery all around me. I can take a winding journey through red rocks, White Mountains or somewhere in between on one of these scenic fall drives just a short distance from Phoenix. The picture above that is courtesy of Nate Kersch highlights a beautiful Autumn Roadway. Begin this scenic venture by driving northeast from Phoenix to the mountain town of Payson, climbing 4,000 feet into Rim Country. The scenery is dominated by the nearby Mogollon Rim—a dramatic escarpment on the edge of the Colorado Plateau that looms 2,000 feet over the towns below. On top of the precipice is cool high country, swathed in forest foliage. From Payson, take Highway 260 to the beginning of Forest Road 300 and skirt the edge of the Rim heading east. You’ll be treated to sweeping views and a perfect palette of fall color in mid-October.

Hi Brian England - Thanks for the shout-out.  Quite a few years ago, Rick and I did that drive to Payson.  It is probably time to go back and revisit that area.

Arizona has so much beauty Laura Cerrano it is great to get out and explore.  I am sure that wherever we live there is so much beauty outside of our immediate area that we have to get out and explore.

Good morning Brian England ,

What a stunning and inviting photo! I was surprised as others have said as I think of AZ with dry heat, mountains, deserts and cacti..these views are lovely as well as the fall colors!

Wonderful drives for sure.  My sister has a cabin in Alpine, which we visit around the color changes.  Thanks for the post, we made it to Wednesday, halfway to the weekend.  Hump Day.  Bill Salvatore

Hi Brain, yes, Arizona has many beautiful areas. We often drive out of the Phoenix Metro, and watch how the saguaros disappear from the scenery, then vegetation gradually turns into cypress shrubs and then into pines.

I love living in Arizona Steffy Hristova and even though I have lived here most of my life, there are still some places I have yet to explore.

When we were out in your area we were surprised at the size of some of the mountain and the narrow roads that needed to be riven to get down to the lower areas.  They would be quite colorful in the fall
