Junipine luncheon, 6/30/18


As "consolation" for the cancelled Durango Tour, OUR CLUB luncheon TOUR FOR SATURDAY, June 30th 2018 WILL BE THE JUNIPINE LODGE & RESTAURANT IN BEAUTUFUL OAK CREEK CANYON

We'll meet at 8:30AM at the Albertson's shopping center on the north side of Carefree Hwy just East of the I 17 intersection.  We meet at the far east end by the bank. Albertson’s has coffee, snacks and restrooms available.

At 8:45 AM we'll head west on Carefree Hwy about 20 miles & turn right on Hwy 60 toward Wickenburg where we will have the usual comfort stop for 10 or 15 minutes at the McDonalds. When departing McDonalds, enter the traffic circle and follow the signs Hwy 89. About 5 miles from Wickenburg, Hwy 89 bears to the right, and that is where you want to go. If you continue straight ahead you will be on Hwy 93 to Las Vegas.  (we’ll miss you) In approximately 8 more miles we climb the hill up to the town of Yarnell which is the “back way” into Prescott. Remain on Hwy 89 through the Prescott National Forest.

As we enter the town of Prescott on Hwy 89 it becomes White Spar Rd for a short distance and then becomes Montezuma Street, stay on Montezuma Street past Goodwin St and Whiskey row, remain on Montezuma past  the Courthouse which will be on your right. Gurley is the next street, turn right and remain on Gurley St ( also Hwy 89 ) for  about 1 mile. A comfort break will be taken at a local gas station and we’ll communicate the stop by club radio.  Following the comfort break, 89 will take you to a fork in the road where 89 continues north and 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 89A. Turn right and follow the signs on 89A to Jerome  do not go straight on hwy 89, that will take you to ashfork

We will continue via 89A to Jerome & Clarkdale, there is a gas station in Clarkdale a Shell, I believe, at the bottom of the hill when you drop down out of Jerome and we will park and wait for the group to get together. It’s also handy for a comfort break and fuel if you need it. We’ll turn right, out of the gas station and head toward Cottonwood. You will still be on Hwy 89A but they also call it 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)  toward Sedona.  and remain on Hwy 89A that will lead you through Sedona (many traffic lights) into Oak Creek Canyon and eventually to the Junipine Lodge on your left. I estimate our arrival time at 12:30 PM approximately. 

Please have a full fuel tank when starting the trip and remember to bring your club radio and name tag. We do need your RSVP so we will have an accurate count for the restaurant. I have to provide this to them ahead of time so please, let's hear from you.

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 email your RSVP so I will know who to expect at the starting point.
