pleasantvalleyyoung265x160ATTN: BACKCOUNTRY PILOTS!


On November 10th-12th we’ll be back in Young, at the Pleasant Valley, 24AZ air-strip. If you have a big tire plane, we’re working on a special fly over to our newest backcountry airstrip, Buzzard’s Roost, that Saturday morning for a preview by for folks that have not been there. Buzzard’s Roost is basically an open hill top suited only for the skilled backcountry pilot with appropriate air-craft. Landing is up hill from either the north or south side of the hill, de-pending on winds, and density altitude, wildlife, rocks, and other debris are all possible. That be-ing said, you can see from the photo below that it is a beautiful place! This view is from the southeast looking north-west towards Payson. The old wind sock pole has been tied to this tree for about 50 years and your APA donated the new wind sock to the USFS who installed it for us last year.

As always expect an incredible dinner at the Antler's for those interested on Friday and Saturday. We will once again have transportation to and from town. 

This will be Veteran's Day weekend, and there's plenty of activities in beautiful Young for the weekend. We'll have transportation. 

As always, if camping is not your thing, book a rooom at the  Pleasant Valley Inn at 928-462-3593

Or rent a beautiful cabin on Cherry Creek!  http://cherrycreekcabins.com/

Other accommodations are available here.  BOOK EARLY!!
