1st trip
Fantastic weekend trip to Reavis Ranch! We had been out here back in January of 2014 from the north, so we decided to conquer the south side now that I have a more capable vehicle. IT took us about an hour to reach the US-60 and Queen Valley Road, then another hour and 15 to drive the dirt road up to Roger's Trough. I only needed the 4 wheel drive on the last big switchback, but it was a bumpy, rocky trip the whole way. We started hiking a little after 3:30 Friday afternoon and made it to the high point right before sunset. After a nice break by Chumley's apparently 'trademark' cairn, we started the last four miles down to the ranch in the dark. There was so much moonlight we did not need our headlamps but for one wrong turn, and a few creek crossings. We hit camp about 7 and said hello to the HAZ crowd around the fire, got my tent set up quickly and then onto some beer, dinner, and revelry. A group of us took off for Circlestone and Mound Mountain Saturday morning after a leisurely breakfast at camp. Circlestone was pretty impressive, but the views from Mound Mountain really made the whole trip. We could see all the way from the Mogollon Rim down to the Santa Ritas way to the south. Amazing to be on top of the Supes! We made the trip back to camp and started tracking down firewood for the night. Sunday morning we packed up at an easy pace, and then spent a good half hour trying to get apples out of the tops of the trees in the orchard. We were able to come up with a few for each of us, my kids were really excited to get a tasty souvenir once I got home. Really great to meet so many folks from HAZ, nice to put some names and faces to a number of folks I had chatted with online, and some others I had not met before.
