Cool2 Crown King, AZ 3-24-13

Took a little trip to Crown King today. Thanks to Nightstalker for a great GPS track.


The Long and winding road


Lake Pleasant in the dinstance


Had to get the bike in the picture



the famous CK Rock



One of the little stream crossings. The water was shallow but the boulders on either side of the streams were a pain.


More Rocky road


Crown King is up there


The road I came up on





An old water tank from the mining days



Up to the cool pines


The Saloon was very busy. It took me an hour to get a burger and fries.


The town was hopping today



The desert was very green



More Scenery





One of the wild burros around lake Pleasant



Had a nice trip. Started a little late as usual. combine that with taking sooo long for lunch I came back the same way I went up. Next time I will finish the loop on the GPS track

Didn't they have a bad fire up there last year? Didn't notice any burn sign. Which road did you take? Thanks for sharing.

When I was up there I saw a group of KLR's probably 7 or 8 all riding together.

Great Report and Pix's....
The desert is really green right now, but we know that will change soon.
Have been making that run for years, via various pathways but the weekends are always busy at C.K. Last time I was there the burger was not worthy of an hour wait but my beer was cold!
Thanks for taking us along on your ride....
