    Went up to Crown King Sunday scouting out some camping spots. Pretty cool area that you can only get to by dirt service road. We reserved a cabin for a benefit in September.

    I took the dogs up to Saguaro Lake today and found these on my way out.

    It looks like they tried to ram the truck to get it unstuck.

    This is the view from the area we'll be camping in later this year. Lake Pleasant is in the distance.

    Thanks guys. I just got the camera a few months back and trying to better pics. There were quite a few quads up there and rhinos. The area seemed perfect for one.

    No we took the easy way up because I didn't want to go up the back way without another truck. I'd like to take the back way up one day.

    Where at Saguaro were those trucks? Looks like an expensive mistake to have made. Esp as they'll be picked over pretty soon.

    I assume those trucks are stolen? Why else would you leave the situation in such disarray?

    That would also explain why they used one to bash the other to get it unstuck. You wouldn't do that unless you weren't driving your own truck.

    The one in the background is just some random guy out there. I talked to him and he said it wasn't his but was probably waiting for me to leave so he and his buddy could take whats left. The truck that rear ended the other had nothing in the cab at all as far as personal belongings. The front truck had no paperwork but the bed and backseat were filled with tools. There was a whole tool set about 100 pcs. and lots of misc. stuff. I thought about it for a second and figured karma would bite me in the ass for sure so I left it.

    Not too far in from the Butcher Jones parking. Pretty much the first place to start climbing some of the ridge lines. They were at the bottom.
