Originally wanted to try the Rug Road trip, but decided to go somewhere we could splash around in the water a little more... So Mr. Wendy and I (along with another couple) headed out on some gnarly 4x4 roads to find a quiet camping/fishing spot along the Gila River near the Needle's Eye Wilderness. It was a perfect desert camp - big mesquite bosques and evil tamarisk for shade and to hang my hammock from ;) We fished for catfish (yum?) and carp (threw those bad boys back!), swam, waded and did a little exploration in side canyons. Lots of cow paths to follow if you don't mind hiking hunched over. Desert was beautiful, heat was bearable with the water, and I only walked out with a couple dozen ant/mosquito/mystery bug bites. Overall a great weekend. Unfortuntately, I've been sworn to secrecy on precise location. If you're good with a map, though, you should have no trouble figuring out where we were!
