April 10, 2017 - I came through the north end of Gila County via some mountain roads which dropped down quickly as I passed through Payson and into Tonto Basin. There seems to be an impressive vista at every major compass point, and the basin area is stunningly beautiful. If you are a motorcycle rider this is an area that demands many stops along the road just to take a photo and admire it all.
