Oracle Tour - Saturday,
According to my records we did this tour last February. It's
difficult to come up with winter drives as we avoid the north country due to
inclement weather. The tour to Oracle is always a great one with plenty of
exciting roads to drive and great scenery. The choices this time around were
either the Ajo/Gila Bend tour or the Oracle tour . Oracle won out :-)

the Chevron gas station and convenience store in Globe at the

Following our stay in Oracle we will backtrack our route north on highway 77
approximately 40 miles to the town of Winkleman, where we will pick up
highway 177 north through the towns of Hayden, Kearny, Riverside, Kelvin and
finally into Superior. Comfort or fuel stops will be decided along the way
and called out on the radio. From Superior, we
will head west on highway 60 for a return to Phoenix.
scenery on highway 77 is picture post card stuff and should be beautiful.
This is truly a beautiful drive and I am sure the meal at the Oracle Inn &
Steakhouse will also be excellent. We have eaten there previously.
Please have a full fuel tank at the start of the tour and remember to bring
along your FRS radio and always have an Arizona
state map handy and you may want a light jacket.
As always, I will need your RSVP for the
restaurant head count, please be prompt with this.
