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?

We did Cave Creek north to Sheep's Bridge, then exited west through Bloody Basin and a night in the Bumble Bee area.

I went through this area about four years ago on a 2,000 mile dirt moto route from SLC to Mexico, then again last year for a day trip, but finally got here for a couple nights with my family now.

Adding 46 photos, bear with me.

Very nice photos you took of a really cool area in Arizona. I've heard about Sheep Bridge before on the Verde River from a friend of mine who lives in Arizona but have never been there yet. I'm heading out that way this Spring so I'm going to put this on my to do list of things to see. It's about thirty miles off I-17 on Bloody Basin Road through the Tonto National Forest isn't it? It looks like you took Cave Creek Road at the junction and came to the bridge from the North and came out on Bloody Basin Road. Anyway, thanks for sharing your four day trip with us.
