Ernie, is there a place within the CG for us to buy ice? And is there a town close by that I can go to to top off the truck with diesel??

Might be wrong but theRanger station might sell Ice. You may have to drive 5-6 miles to get fuel but it is no bigie. You are not that far away from Apache Junction so there are a lot of things to do. Phone number for Lost Dutchman is 480-982-4485 if you have any questions.

Be sure to go inside the restaurant at Tortilla Flats. Up around the bar are saddles for stools each named after a famous horse... Brings out the kid still in you...

Hopefully you don't have a hugh truck with you as the Apache trail feeding all the Lakes up to the North is a narrow two lane windy road for forty/fifty miles or so. Fish Creek Canyon is a great down hill road right as you enter the two lane trail road going north. Last time we was there coming back from seeing all the Lakes and Desert pull outs we got stuck at the bottom of the Fish Creek as some Bus tried to come down the canyon road and got the Bus stuck on the overhanging rocks. We hiked all kinds back trails at the bottom of the Canyon road to have something to do for three or four hours...

Fortunately for us and a whole bunch of other stranded folks there was a nice pull off section at the bottom of Fish Creek and we went searching for neat rocks in the creek there. Found all kinds of interesting rocks hehe... It was way too far to go back North and get back to Apache Junction via another road so everyone there just figured best thing to do was wait it out. Took quite awhile to get the BUS pulled back...

There was a couple camping along the creek and I guess we invaded their privacy big time. There was 15-20 of us folks wandering around the creek for several hours haha...

Any of those up on the top loop....32, 30, 27 are great.

Probably a couple more but take a look at the map when you can.
