thanks for posting. I am an AZ native, but I had never heard of this spot before. My wife and I drove out to sheep crossing bridge this weekend. great drive. Only wish there was a way to cross the Verde river to make a loop instead of having to head back the way we came.
There is, if the river's low enough. Good forest road down the east side of the river and Horseshoe Lake, then you cross the Verde again at the ranch below Horseshoe Dam.
Good judgement comes from experience. Experience more often than not comes from bad judgement.
