Christopher Creek Crawdad Hunters (Payson / Mogollon Rim, Arizona)

When the heat rises in Arizona, often times one is looking to escape the Valley of the Sun by the time June rolls around.  I grew up camping with my family at Christopher Creek campground just outside Payson near the Mogollon Rim.  I have vivid memories of time spent being a kid..... catching crawdads, snakes, fishing, hiking, campfires, smore's, etc.  It's probably what birthed my passion for the great outdoors.  In passing down the great legacy of this time in my life with my kids, you can see the joy in their eyes as they spend most of the time in the water catching every critter that comes their way.
