Diamond Point Caves



The Trail:

We joined the Central Arizona Jeepers on a ride to the caves near Diamond Point in Payson. Along the way we stopped at a picked over crystal collection site, though we did find some interesting rocks and animals. The trail to the caves was a little muddy from the recent rain, but was fairly easy going (we didn't even air down).
