Hello All!  Sorry that I missed this thread - I have been out of town for 5 days with my daughter, having a wonderful time in northern AZ, and just now home!  If you come this way, I have lots of spots - Burro Creek is always a fav of mine, but not their campground...sites are small and I"ve never met a nice campground host there yet.  Alamo Lake has lots of space....And I like having it at Tim's house too!  Just let me know if you want further input from me...

Oh and btw, I think I can get us back to that one spur in Burro Creek without missing the turn....but then again, those that know me.....LOL  (Just joking, I marked it on my gaia map)

smiles, ladybug

@Curly, i've been in that slot canyon you can drive through... i'm remembering it being on the north-west side of the lake and wouldn't that be more of an overnighter?

 

Alamo in general is in the middle of nowhere and a long boring dusty drive to get to from any direction that i know of.

Just putting some suggestions out there. 

I'm in Phx  till Thursday, can't check  my info till then, but I think the slot canyon is on the N.E. side. @Ladybug may have that info. I've done Yuma to Phx for day runs w/o staying overnight.

The slot canyon is on the north side of the lake;  there is a mud canyon for a short hike on the south side of the lake.  There is a paved road to access the south side of Alamo Lake, and then dirt on all trails.  Something to keep in mind that this has become a hot OHV area, lots of sidebys out here now.  But lots of space as well!  So we can find a place to have our party out there.  

 

I did think that Perry Mesa would be awesome too! - lots of space there as well, but that one might be weather dependent...it might to cold, and it might be muddy going back on Bloody Basin Road....But it would be worth considering as well, imho.

 

We can also find a spot out by Hope AZ, which would be maybe easier access for east valley folks to be able to drive i-10 most of the way out.

 

But then I also love the Burro Creek area!

sigh....so many choices!

i know Tim, and we appreciate all the suggestions!

 

everyone please keep in mind that the BBQ, cookie contest, and gift exchange take several hours. we do have a few people that regularly attend from further away (love you troopers), but the majority of folks are coming from the valley. in the past even with the trail only taking a couple hours each way, and the trailhead being less than an hour from Phoenix, it's still made for a full day for most folks.

There are petroglyphs out there on Perry Mason.

Another thought for a location might be up behind Cleator.....There's an old flat mine site out there if I remember right....and its a lower elevation than Perry Mesa, and a central location.
