Five miles from North Ranch RV Park gets us to the foot of Yarnell Hill, five miles takes us up 2000’ to Yarnell,
and one of our favorite breakfast places—the Ranch House Restaurant. It is open only on Thurs-Sun,6 am-2 pm. It is a favorite stopping point for many biker group rides.
The inside is small, the service is kind of on the slow side, the food pretty good.
Eclectic signs offer something to occupy your interest while you wait.
From our window we saw this really cool looking bike.
Outside are two tributes to the Granite Mountain Hot Shots.
On June 28, 2013, lightning started a wildfire in Yarnell. Aided by drought and high winds, the fire burned 127 homes and 8400 acres in and around Yarnell and Peoples Valley. On June 30 the wind blew the fire back on 19 firefighters.
On Nov. 30 the Granite Mountain Hot Shots Memorial State Park is set to open. Access will be from pull-off on the downhill road just outside Yarnell.
After Duane’s breakfast and my lunch, we passed the pull-off on our way back to Congress (spread out below).
We always give a nod to the green frog,
the vine horse,
and The Mall in Congress on our way back to the Park.
We leave you with this thought for the day:
Louise and Duane
