Following our stay
in Oracle we will backtrack our route on highway 77 approximately 40
miles to the town of Winkleman, corner of Hwy 177. There is a gas
station at that intersection if you need it for a comfort break; the rest
of us will wait for you. We will pick up Hwy 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
Finding a restroom in Superior can be challenging so be
prepared and plan ahead.
The scenery on Highways 77 and 177 is picture post
card stuff and fun roads to drive in
our Z痴. This is truly a beautiful drive and I知 sure you will enjoy it.
Please have a full fuel tank and name tag at the start of the
tour and remember to bring along your
communications radio and a copy of this tour guide. It痴 always a
good idea to have an Arizona state map handy.
