We plan on exploring west of Lake Pleasant. Meeting at the Chevron gas station east of I-17 on Carefree highway at 9AM.

I got a job with a mandatory break between Christmas and New Year's - but much less vacation during the year than anybody else :frown:

oh my - so many whoopdidooos :eek:

the area -also known as Boulder OHV area- is apparently heavily used by ATVs and motorcycles - which leaves trails narrow and rutted, but also had some very steep climbs and very tight turns

as we got deeper into the mountains, the scenery improved dramatically and we didn't meet anybody

there is some sort of construction/clean-up going on around Castle Hot Springs, many land for sale signs, utilities are in, including fiberoptic cable

but very scenic until we got to the lake

there we decided to take a short trip into the Humbug Creek area again

only shortly after the turn-off to find a guy walking towards us - he reported a broken-down vehicle

F-150 that lost charge from the battery real fast and ran only a few miles on the replacement battery they had brought in

of course, instead of proceeding, we helped them out

here are a few pix, hard to keep a camera steady in all the whoop-di-doo's.

Did I mention there were lots of whoop-di-doo's?

Agree the Boulders area is for ATV's and they can have it.:D The road along the wilderness area is very cool and a good stocker friendly run.

Once we got closer to the mountains it got more interesting.

And how come all the turns on top of a climb are blind right-handers???
