Stretching 200 miles from Yavapai County to New Mexico, the Mogollon Rim provides breathtaking views overlooking an expansive forest of pine trees. The rim is a true geological wonder hosting sedimentary, volcanic and metamorphic rock dating back to the Precambrian era. Enjoy a leisurely picnic or trek along the historic hiking and horseback riding trails – but there is more to see. Choose between biking, horseback riding, rock-climbing, hunting, fishing, boating, bird-watching, and stargazing. “More elk than people. Some of the darkest, most translucent skies in North America. Also home to the Discovery Channel Telescope!”
Chelynne Campion is a Production/ Sales Assistant for EarthSky. Her family just purchased a telescope, and she's now learning to be a stargazer!
