White Mountains Ride and Camp

The heat is getting to me and I've saved up enough vacation to take some time off so it is time to ride to some cool country and camp.

Ride Name: White Mountains Ride and Camp
Date: Starting 9/2 through 9/12
Meeting time: When you get there
Meeting location: KP Cienega (State route 191 just south of Hannigans Meadow)
Difficulty: You can make it what you wish
Notes: From Tucson it is just about equal distance from the south approach through Safford/Morenci or the north approach through Globe. About 5 hours either way. If you have taken 191 you have passed about 1 mile from the camp. KP Cienega is a small campsite of about 6 spots. Vault toilet. Incredible view. Lots of wood in the area had plenty of cut up logs and downed trees nearby. Small stream nearby with a great hike in the area to some waterfalls if your legs are up to it. Plenty of forest roads to explore. Running water available at Hannigan Campsite about 3 miles away. Showers reportedly available at Hannigan Meadow.

I may move down slope to another campsite that I've heard about called Blue. Reportedly sits at a lower elevation next to the Blue river. 28 mile dirt road access if I recall.

Here are some weather info sites. Zoom in and click on the satellite for a view of the area.
