Mormon Lake Lunch Drive -
Saturday, June 25, 2011
HERE to see pictures!
We have selected the Mormon Lake Lodge for a lunch drive
on Saturday June 25th. Normally, we would meet in Fountain Hills and take Hwy 87
and 87A, north to the destination, however, since our last two tours took us on
that same route either to or through Payson, we have decided to do it
differently this time just to give us different scenery and different roads to
drive on. I have attached a copy of their lunch menu in "Word" format.
We will meet at the Albertson's center on Carefree Hwy ¼
mile east of Hwy 17 at 9 :00 AM. For those new to the club, we meet at the far
east end of the Albertson's shopping center in front of the bank. Take Hwy 17
north to Camp Verde where we will pick up General Cook Trail which bypasses most
of the city and connects with hwy 260. We'll continue on Hwy 260 east to Hwy 87
just north of Strawberry, AZ and we will continue north on 87 to Clint's Wells.
From there we pick up Hwy 87A to Happy Jack and Mormon Lake. We are scheduled
for lunch at approximately noon.
Please arrive at the start with a full fuel tank and your
club radio and name tags. Comfort and fuel stops will be called out on the radio
as needed. The first planned comfort stop will be in Camp Verde at the Shell
station on General Cook Trail and West Salt Mine Road, they also have a
convenience store. We won't need fuel but we should purchase something in order
to make use of the bathrooms. FYI there is fuel available at Mormon Lake if you
The routing for this tour will take us out of the hot
weather into tall timber country. There are several options for a return to the
Valley that vary greatly in length and time, each couple can select from the
following: We can discuss this after lunch when we meet in the parking lot.
a) Take Hwy17 all the way home
b) Take hwy 89 through Oak Creek and Sedona. From
there, there are 2 choices
As always, I need your RSVP and while we're at it, please
send your RSVP for the July 4th dinner event if you have not already done so.
I am quite distressed over the terrible forest fires as I
am sure the members are also. These area's are within some of our favorite
touring routes and we'll be in the thick of the remains during our planned
Silver City tour in September. How devastating for the local residents, I can't
imagine what they are going through.
