it was a good ride. my wife was kinda pissed because she wanted to go to tortilla flat but in the end it was all good. that road from bagdad to kirkland is awesome.

Good report... Thanx for sharing... If you like the kirkland jct-to-bagdad route (96), you'll also like the ride from Just east of bagdad south on 97, which connects to 93...;)

that may very well be the road i'm thinking of. i was following. i didn't really know the area. we went to bagdad from 93(north of wickenberg), that must be the road i was thinking of. it was like a roller coaster.

Yup, if you left Wickenburg and continued NW on 93 past the 89 jct (which takes you to Yarnell), 97 is the one that intersects with 93 approx 25-26 miles west of Wickenburg, where with a turn to the North you climb up the grade to Bagdad to intersect with 96 just east of Bagdad. That portion fo the ride is a sure-fire roller-coaster and fun ride...:driving:

AND... 96 east bound from Bagdad to Kirkland Jct. is also a fine and fun ride, but is more twisty than the roller-coaster ride of 97...:angel:
