The title sounds very glamorous, but in truth is a dirty/bare bones ride. Dont expect to get some killer asphalt on this ride, shit is old school. The scenery is epic though, rolling through some of the historic mining towns of Arizona you can just feel the blood sweat and tears that went into most of these places. I would do this run in the Spring or Fall. Stay away in the Summer, it gets deathly hot.

For years growing up I would pass this place on family vacations out to Payson or Pinetop and I always told myself that I would stop there when I grew old enough. I finally made it around to making the journey about two years ago. Its pretty much a straight shot up the 87 but its a fun ass ride. Wide open and turns for days.
This place definitely has some crazy treasures if your down to pay the asking price. Everything on this guys yard is worth its weight in gold, at least in his opinion. Be prepared to be chaperoned by a local cause they trust NO ONE. Bottom line, there is some cool as shit so take an hour and cruise around. If anything, its worth it for the ride in itself.
