Jeep Trip Last Weekend to Crown King and Prescott

On Saturday of last week, my buddy Nick and my middle son Jarrett went out jeeping in the new Wrangler with me to Crown King and the back way into Prescott. The weather was cool among the pines at 7,000 ft and a nice break from Phoenix.

Arizona Virtual Jeep Club has another trip planned from Lake Pleasant that is a moderate jeeping trail, meaning most stock jeeps and 4x4 trucks can make it. Check out the AZVJC online at and if you want to get out of the heat, take a trip to Crown King.

For those of you that have spent time in Arizona, our state offers so much diversity in both climate and recreation. Snowbowl and Sunrise offer skiing. The state ranges in elevation from near 100 feet in Yuma to 12,000 feet at several of the peaks in the east. Offers deserts and high plateaus as well as pine forests and everything in between. 4x4's look good on 20's rolling in the cities, but take a trip out of Phoenix with your H2, Jeep, or truck and get some dirt on the tires. Explore our wonderful state.
