This will be a fun and relaxing weekend car camping near the confluence of Turkey and Aravaipa Creeks, near the eastern entrance to Aravaipa. Our camp will be creekside nestled under huge sycamore trees.There will be plenty of firewood to keep us warm in the evening.
We'll drive up Friday and crash at the Fourmile Canyon campground near Klondike.
On Saturday after setting up camp in Turkey Creek, we'll hike down lush Aravaipa Canyon. This is a beautiful water hike and we'll explore beautiful Booger Canyon. Upon our return to our base camp, we'll enjoy an evening campfire and cocktails.
On Sunday, we'll hike up babbling Turkey Creek under a canopy of sycamores and cottonwoods and visit a cliff dwelling. We'll head home in the afternoon.
There is a $5 fee for the Aravaipa day use permit that will be collected at the carpool location. Here's a map of the area: http://www.toddshikingguide.com/Hikes/Arizona/Misc/AravaipaEast.jpg
