A nice side stop- Flowing Springs Road outside of Payson

A peaceful flowing river
A relaxing spot by the river
And then... on our way back to the parking lot, we noticed some smoke--thought could be our truck, a smoke signal, or, as we got closer, better bet a forest fire.  Yep, as we walked up we could see the line of smoke which was billowing pretty good.  We noticed a younger couple that had been camping and offered our help in moving  their tent and belongings to the parking lot.  Evidently, another camper down by the river had let his campfire get out of control.  It was pretty windy out, so once we got the majority of camping gear to the parking lot and were told the officials had been called, we headed out of there!
