Roosevelt Lake / Globe tour -
Saturday February 7th, 2015 we
will have a one day touring event of the Punkin Center, Roosevelt Lake, Globe,
loop. To many of you, this will be a familiar route as we have done it four
times in the past. As best that I can calculate, this will be about 210
miles round trip. We usually return by the same route but as an alternative you
can drive into Globe and take Hwy 60 back to the Valley.
We will begin the tour at the
Target shopping center parking lot in Fountain Hills located at the
intersection of Saguaro and Shea Blvds. We’ll meet at the west end of the
parking lot by Starbucks. Plan to arrive at 9:30AM and we'll depart at 9:45 AM.
As always, please arrive with a full fuel tank, there is fuel available in the
general area east on Shea. Please remember your club radio and name tags.
We'll head north on Hwy 87 and
turn east on Hwy 188. There is a comfort stop available at Jake’s corner and
we will pull in the lot and park for 15 minutes. Afterward, we'll head east on
188 toward Punkin Center, then on to Roosevelt Lake. We may stop for a
scenic view depending upon our schedule that will have us arrive for lunch in
Globe around 12:00 noon.
We will proceed north on Hwy 87
for 48 miles to the Junction with Hwy 188. Turn right on to the 188 heading for
Punkin Center and Lake Roosevelt. About 33 miles from the Junction we will cross
a bridge which spans an arm of the Lake. Below (South) of the bridge, you may be
able to catch a glimpse of the tallest brick dam in the U.S. Roosevelt Dam.
We may stop at the scenic
overlook just past the bridge, have your club radio on so you will hear the
instructions. If we are ahead of schedule this is a good rest stop and a scenic
place to kill some time.
After looking around, we will
continue on 188 and we will be eating at the Mexican food restaurant named
Guayo’s. They are on highway 188, left side , just before we enter Globe.
