Added onto my Tour de EAZ with a stop at the RNCA. Nice time of year to be there, though maybe a week early, depending on the specific locale. Can't go wrong either way! Headed over Bull Gap to the Orange Cliffs but was a little disappointed in the view. Forgot that you can't connect the drive between the pipeline road and Lee, but not before pushing my truck to uncomfortable limits. Made it less than a mile away, but it wasn't gonna happen. There are some deep crossings along the way that made for some tacofun.

Opted for the west rim road to solomon for the exit which ended up being more miserable than remembered, then dark, and generally cold. I'm probably the first person ever who was happy to arrive at the Safford Airport.

Saw a couple of hawks and some other winged things along the way. Hoping for a baldy or two along the Gila, but no luck.
