There are lots of scenic highways in Arizona, most far longer than the 31 miles of Arizona Highway 177. The road runs between two small towns, Winkelman and Superior.
While most of the route is very scenic, it does run along the massive Ray Copper Pit (no photos – why ruin the scenery).
The good news is the rest of the route have views like this.
The road drops more than 1000 vertical feet going south from Superior. It is a popular route for motorcycles, as we passed about 50 motorcycles going northbound in the 30 miles.
Many of the hillsides were covered in wildflowers on this early April day.
Once you reach the Gila River basin you find numerous fields of green.
A short line railroad runs up the valley from Winkelman, and ends our great ride along Arizona Highway 177.

I like this post. Your website is awesome. Very well done. I’m an amateur photographer as well.
Thank you for the compliment. As you will see I have been enjoying photography for a long time now – but more important to me is to experience the event and/or venue. I am always on the lookout for something different.
