Jeff Clyde did a great job leading his first Jeepers Creepers trail on a beautiful Arizona December day. There were 12 folks (including two ladies) in seven vehicles: 5 jeeps, a Toyota FJ and a Suzuki. WELCOME new members Chuck Pfeil and Covert Bailey.
We paused for the coffee break in the wash at the beginning of FR 172. It seemed that every time we stopped lot of socializing began. Perhaps that proves that we are a happy group!
The above and two below pictures show all of the vehicles on the run.
Recent rains filled the water tank at the right, and there also were a few puddles along the road. Our road wanders from left to right as it climbs to about 5000 ft.
We are still higher on the eastern part of the Superstition Mountains. There were several closed gates on this run, and we duly opened and closed them after we passed.
Here we are at the lunch break, with a fire, at the large stopping area just before making the descent over 17 switchbacks to reach the bottom of the next canyon.
We took a short detour to check out the stone cabin at the bottom of the hill. There is a fairly new windmill there to provide water for cattle.
