with some changes to the azt 300 route due to construction on a dam we use to cross the gila river i felt the need to go check out part of the new route and fill in a gap in my mapping mind. plus, chad and scott have been raving about this segment for some time. so, gordy and i headed out after what was a weird late winter storm, even by our standards (be what they may). the temperature in kelvin when we started was a balmy 36 degrees.
after winding up and down ripsey we headed back on route in the car to find a sweet well.
great day on the bikes and found some sweet new backpacking ideas.
