Sheep's Bridge

Four day trip to the remote Sheep's Bridge area on the beautiful Verde River.  Once you leave pavement, it takes about four hours over 30+ miles to get to the campsite.  Lots quicker if you're not hauling a rolli-polli slow truck camper, but who's in a hurry?

Road essentially goes over the mountain there.


One of my favorite spots in the high desert

Climb about 4,000+ feet out of the Verde River valley


Long rough road out Bloody Basin to I-17

Campsite at Bumble Bee


One of the better sites.
