This One Little Arizona Town Is A Nature Lover’s Dream

The Grand Canyon State is full of natural wonders, but few cities have a higher concentration than Payson. This mid-sized town of just over 15,000 is a hidden oasis in Northern Arizona, with everything from a 300-million-year-old fossil site to the magical Mogollon Rim.
