Rising abruptly above the basin is the precipitous two-hundred-mile escarpment named the Mogollon Rim. A variety of vegetation often intermingles: the Ponderosa Pine Forest, with the Interior Chaparral and the Great Basin Montane Scrubland.

 

The area begins at an elevation of 5,000 ft. and goes up to 8,000 ft. It is very pleasant in the spring and the fall, but visits can be uncomfortable during the winter and the summer.

During the "monsoon season" in July and August, severe thunderstorms occur, sometimes causing potentially dangerous flash-flooding.
