Next we stopped near the Salt River for a quick overnight. The Salt River Bridge was a short distance. The original bridge has been abandoned but left in tack adjacent to the new bridge. The filming of Running and a helicopter crash scene took place on the original bridge.
The road was very steep and curvy in places, so much so we left very early in the morning so the Beaver would not overheat on the steep grades.
Next we explored Show Low, with the intention of spending the night at the Elks club. It turned out they wanted to charge the same price for dry camping as for hook ups along with a deposit, so we moved along and continued back to Casa Grande, to the SKP park accumulating more miles than normal. The next few days were spent regrouping and preparing for our trip to Oregon.
Lots of changes are in the future, so stay tuned.
