All year is a pleasant time in the Mogollon Rim Mountains if you go for the outdoors. You'll meet a lot of folks from Pinetop here; since you're here, you could also stop by picturesque Hawley Lake. And if that's not enough, there's loads more to do right next door to Gooseberry Dam Lake. Take a side journey to Williams Creek;
the vista of Little Haystack Mountain is delightful. The Mogollon Rim Mountains scenery is always beautiful. Life's too short to enjoy all the fun stuff in the Mogollon Rim Mountains.
