For this tour we will be traveling mostly west of Phoenix, through the towns of Buckeye, Hassayampa and Arlington. Length of tour is 4 to 6 hours depending upon your interest. The rates reflect this. The area gets its name as the Gila River makes a 90 degree turn coming south from Phoenix and turning west toward Yuma. The road turns into dirt, and we enter the rugged mountains of Gila Bend, Woolsey Peak, Signal Peak and 4th of July wash. We will see several species of trees, shrubs and cacti. At times we have seen rabbits, lizards, birds, deer, bighorn sheep and even wild horses. On one ridge top we can view 360 degrees forever. It is reported that the Gila Bend area was inhabited by the Hohokam Indian Tribe. Artifacts found here included copper bells which may have come from the Monument Valley of northern Arizona and macaw feathers believed to have come from the Sea of Cortez. This indicates a great travel and trading corridor. The Gila River was a route followed to Yuma, Arizona and on to California. Toward the end of the tour we will be at the Petroglyphs (drawings etched into rock) at the Painted Rock Reservoir.
