Roosevelt Lake/Globe Tour -
On Saturday, November 17th 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 five
times in the past, this will be about 225 miles round trip. There is a lot
of beautiful scenery and the route is highlighted by straights, sweeping
bends and some tight twisties >>>>>>>>>> always an
enjoyable drive! Lunch is
at Guayos On The Trail, great Mexican food.
We will begin the tour
at the Target shopping center parking lot in Fountain Hills located at the
intersection of Saguaro and Shea Blvds, west end of the parking lot by
Starbucks. Coffee, snacks and a restroom are available. Plan to arrive at 9:00
AM and we'll depart at 9:15 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 toward Payson and turn east on Hwy 188 toward Jake's Corner and Punkin
Center, then on to Roosevelt Lake. We may stop for a scenic view depending upon the
schedule that will have us arrive for lunch in Globe, around 12:30. About 33
miles from the Junction of 87 and 188 we will cross a bridge which spans an arm
of the Lake, you may be able to catch a glimpse of the tallest brick dam in the
U.S., Roosevelt Dam.
About 5 miles past the
bridge, we will come to the entrance of the Tonto National Monument on
the right side of the road. We may drive up to the picnic area for a
view of the lake depending upon our ETA for Globe and lunch. After looking
around, we will continue southeast on 188 to the restaurant (actually, into
Globe for fuel and then back to the restaurant.
Let’s plan ahead to
refuel before lunch, we can drive past the restaurant and go into Globe to
refuel our cars so we will all be ready for the return trip following lunch.
We’ll return the same way, but the scenery is entirely different going in the
reverse direction, AWESOME !!
important that I have a head count so I can arrange the proper space for the
lunch so please send back your RSVP while
you're thinking about it. This does not have to be sealed in concrete, we
realize that sometimes things come up and you have to cancel. However, it helps
us to have some idea what the size of the group will be.
