Lunch at Junipine Lodge in
Oak Creek - Saturday,
On Saturday, September 24th we will be touring to...
As previously reported, due to heavy road
construction and delays, we have cancelled the luncheon drive to Show Low
via Salt River Canyon, and have substituted a drive to the Junipine
Restaurant in Oak Creek Canyon.
Here are the details
for the tour.
We will meet at 8:30 AM at the
Albertsonís market on Carefree Hwy just 1/2 mile East of Int 17 on the
north side of Carefree Hwy. We meet toward the far east end by the bank.
There is a bathroom In Albertsonís and coffee & donuts are
available as well. We will depart at 9:00AM and head west on
Carefree Highway to the Hwy 93 junction. Turn right toward Wickenburg
another 10 miles.
We will stop at McDonalds in Wickenburg for 15 minutes for a comfort
Turn right out of McDonalds and stay right at
the traffic circle and follow the Hwy 89 signs to Yarnell and Prescott.
Do not take Hwy 93 at the fork of 93 and 89, 93 will take
you to Kingman, you donít want to go there
Previous trips on
this route usually have a promise of cooler weather once we hit the town
of Yarnell. If your top is up and you want to lower it, this is a good
place to do it and we'll stop the caravan to accommodate this. Please
keep your club radio tuned in for instructions or to let us know that
you wish to stop.
The balance of the drive is pretty straight
forward as we drive through the very scenic Prescott National Forest and
then we arrive at the outskirts of Prescott.
A paved road named Haisley Road will come up about 2 miles south of
Prescott. We will turn right and follow it to Gurley street (also
Hwy 89) where we will turn right and
in about 1/2 mile we will reach a fork in the road ,
Just before the
fork there is a Circle K gas station on the right; be sure you stay
in the far left lane in order to remain on 89. At that fork,
Hwy 69 goes to the right and will take
you back to I 17 and Phoenix. Stay to the left on hwy 89 and in
approximately 6 miles you will come to the intersection of Hwy 89 and
Turn right and follow the signs on 89A
to Jerome. DO NOT GO STRAIGHT ON HWY 89, THAT WILL TAKE YOU TO ASHFORK,
another place you don't want to go.
We will not be stopping in
Jerome due to the weekend congestion in that town. Due to traffic, we may
get separated as we approach Jerome and also on the down side after leaving.
After passing through Jerome you will still be on alt 89A and at the very
bottom of the hill you will come to a stop sign with a gas station on the
right; this is the town of Clarkdale and will be a good place to refuel and
have a comfort break. When leaving the gas station, turn right and remain on
89A into Cottonwood. 89A becomes Cottonwood Blvd. At the corner of
Cottonwood Blvd (89A) and Main St. turn right and follow Main St (also
called 89A) for a short distance and you will come to a fork where hwy 260
goes off to the right and 89A to the left.
Bear left (89A) Sedona. If you take
two more forks you'll have service for four. Take 89A toward Sedona which is
about 23 miles. We will be driving through the commercial district in Sedona
so expect some traffic lights, congestion and short delays. Remain on 89A
following the signs to Oak Creek. You will come to a junction where 89A goes
straight ahead and Hwy 179 goes off to the right, stay on 89A and the
Junipine is about three miles further on the left hand side of the road.
Please have a full fuel tank
when starting the trip and remember to bring your club radio, name tag and
this route guide, we also recommend an Arizona state map or plug in your GPS
to this address:
8351 AZ-89A, Sedona, AZ
There are a few different choices for the return
route and that can be decided during or after lunch, not everyone will
select the same route home.
We look forward to a great turnout for this tour.
Please send me your RSVP so I will have
a head count for the restaurant.

received your new Baofeng radio, please
remind me and I will bring it along.
