Yeah, maybe we should let em keep thinking that and not disclose that we have this amazing state abundant with trails of all kinds. You want to play in the snow - a few donuts perhaps, head to Flag. Prefer a sunny, surprisingly comfortable, 100 degree day, no problem. + everything in between, and the whole place is full of gorgeous trails and awesome scenery. Anyone know a way to get paid for wandering the state and exploring? Sign me up!

LOL, back when I was in high school, I moved up to upstate N.Y. for my freshman year. When the students there learned that I was from Arizona, they asked me 2 questions: Did we have running water with indoor toilets, and how often did we get attacked by wild Indians.... They were dead serious. These kids had no concept of the open space we have here.

Then, Later, when I was stationed in Florida in the Navy, friends there also had no idea of what it is like here, and like you said, they think all we have is sand. Now they see pictures that I send to them and they can't believe it.

We are so fortunate to live in this beautiful state!!

Blackjackman, those are some great pictures!

i was wheeling out up from Bullhead City. came over a ridge and the whole area was covered in that type of cactus. pluss thetrail was coved in parts of those that must have been blow around in the last storm. I look at my tires and they are stuck all over them as well, no flats but i found that even my winch gloves would not protect me from those barbed spines. since they were on the road not growin I took afew small pieces home and dropped them in a planter. They grow like a weed. now I have them in my yard too. might have been a mistake. lol

LOL and thx Rx. Yeah, they call them jumping cholla. They don't really jump, but if you get even close, they can get ya. I was golfing with a buddy who found his ball and a cholla. He claimed he was 4 feet away but came out of the rough with a big ball stuck through his pants and into his calf. Before I could hit it off with my 7 iron, the idiot grabbed it with his hand to pull it off!!!! I learned that day not to ever mess with those things!!! Search YouTube for "cholla cactus" to see some other unfortunate folks. Don't know wether to laugh at them or just wince.

Had a bird dog that walked by one, stuck to his side and he reached back to bite it. Well it took 3 men( 2 to hold him down and 1 with needle nose pliers) to get them out of his mouth and nose. It was worse than the porcupine incident.

i hear you on that. I made the error of pulling it of a tire to have it stick to my hand like a treble hook.

I had a lab Vrs porupine out in show low. by the blood on the dog it was hard to tell if he won or not. took hours of needle nose pliers to pull some out and others i had to push through his lower jaw. he never flinched or bit me just sat there like dady fix this please.

Found a few more. Just love Arizona! If ya like em, say so, and I'll keep diggin em up.

Is your road rocky and rough? Driving in, this area looks smooth as glass. But I assure you, though they are not boulders, you do need to crawl over these rocks. Big time bumpy.

Thx azwj! The rocky place is out by Saguaro Lake, east of Bush Hwy. I'd have to go back to really find it again. Gotta start geolocating my pics. : ) Most of the ones I post are from the Tonto NF. Lots of ways in but I like to head east on Dynamite to the 136-144th Sts, and head north. The place is about 3 Million acres, so I've got a long long way to go before I can say I know my way around. Most times I just top off the tank, grab what I need, and GO! My stock WJ has taken me almost everywhere I've wanted to go in there. As of today, I'll keep going in deeper, but with a little more confidence. Got mine back today with a BUNCH of new stuff. If I had the lights I'd be out there wheelin right now! Just got it at lunch so haven't driven it too much, but its love at first ride and sight. Had it for a long time so a 2" boost looks HUGE to me. Lets see if my beautiful bride notices - she don't know yet... Happy Friday all!!

LMAO!! - Yea, I was gonna sign up to the site with my no-mod rod when I was taking those pics and trying to break stuff on my 14 year old suspension. But i wanted to show a little more Jeepieness. Nothing at all broke but just old and tired. So, after about 850 Miles of beating on it a little in the desert, I decided to keep it another 5 years and start building it slowly. Now, new shocks, brakes all around, tires, 2" lift, and a bunch of other stuff, engine mounts, serpentine... I figured I'd check in, and see what's up. Lots of cool people, knowledge, and great upgrade ideas! I expected nothing less from a bunch of fellow Jeep owners. Love all the cool pics of what others have done.

Now what do I do? Exhaust, intake, chip? Light bar, headlights, winch? Possibilities are endless. Wish I'd have hit that giant lotto. Always open to suggestions! Thx!

Definitely agree with that. Went up and around Bradshaw Mt. Yesterday with Daniel and his brother. The Jeep did so much better than I anticipated. Thanks again Erick.
