Myself and probably another Tacoma are hoping to get in a nice day trip this Saturday or Sunday. Two AO's I have been eyeballing for a while are:
Walnut Canyon / Battleaxe Rd- Backside of the Mineral Mountains, behind the Coke Ovens. 1500-2500' elevations, about 61 miles from the 101&202 stack.
Gisela area south of Payson. 3000-5000' elevations, about 80 miles from the 101&202 stack.
Both are all day trips, meeting up around 8am and getting back around 4-5pm. If you are interested post up and we can iron out a firm day and plan of attack.
