Anyone coming from the North Valley, let's meet up at Fry's Marketplace 4707 E Shea Blvd, Phoenix, AZ 85028 at 11AM, and both groups will meet up at the Taco Bell near Shea and the 87! If you're going to meet up at this location, shoot me a text so I know how many people we should wait for. [masked]-1075. See you guys Monday!
This is the same event as the other Labor Day Picnic posted, just a different meeting location for folks coming from the North side of town. Both groups will meet up in Fountain Hills near Shea and the 87.
We're going to have a labor day picnic up at Tonto Natural Bridge.
It's a scenic two hour drive up the 87 Beeline Highway to the park, where temperatures are a good 15 degrees cooler and will be 80-90 degrees when we get up there. That's practically where I set the thermostat in my apartment.
There will be a mandatory pitstop at Sonic for slushies just outside of Payson. This is non-negotiable.
Please bring a bite to eat, and something to share.
We will bring some sides, and a number of extra car seats available if you need a ride up.
The park has a large picnic area, some historic buildings, a babbling brook, and of course, the natural bridge itself, which is an easy 10 minute hike to the bottom (There is also a loop which takes 30-45 minutes to complete if you wish to hike the entire trail)
We will meet up by Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que (TEMPE TOWN MARKETPLACE) at 11 AM to leave for the picnic. You can also meet us at the park if the timing or the sonic pit stop requirement are not convenient for you.
There is a $5 Fee per person to enter the park. They have a generous and large grassy picnic area.
As always, feel free to text or call me at[masked] if you need help finding us :)
