Dave and Heather joined Marilyn and me for a hike up and down the Mogollon Rim. Starting from the Geronimo Trailhead, we hiked Geronimo to the Turkey Trail, which took us to Milk Ranch Point, a Mogollon Rim peninsula. Atop the rim, we hiked FS 218 and then headed back down via the West Webber Trail. We returned to the trailhead via the Geronimo Trail.
We crossed this small creek at the start:

There were some expansive views from the Turkey Trail. We decided to go up this trail instead of West Webber because I had read that West Webber was shadier – I wanted the shade during the warmer parts of the day.
A view from the West Webber Trail. West Webber was mostly in forest. This was probably the most expansive view available from that trail.
Marilyn and I crossed this “bridge” on our way back. Dave and Heather had hiked ahead of us and most likely took the left fork while descending the West Webber Trail. I enjoyed this stretch of trail – there was just enough growth to make me look twice in a few spots to see where to go next.
We saw this mushroom on the Geronimo Trail not long before arriving back at the trailhead.
