THE Trip, San Tan Flat, Queen Creek, Arizona

Copyright 2011, CABS for Reflections From the Fence


Just a few nights before we were leaving Gold Canyon we got together with MOC (Montana Owners Club) friends Ray and Coleen and drove over to Queen Creek to San Tan Flat, which came well recommended by mutual MOC friends Bob and Mina.

I'm a sucker for any old wagon to photograph, that said, that white painted seat looks a little out of place in the weather beaten wagon,


And, you just know there has to be a saguaro somewhere:


Now, look closer, this saguaro is made out of horseshoes!  Ahhh, you gotta love southwest art:


San Tan Flat is known for it's barbecue, ribs!  (As well as their burgers!)  But, you need to get there quite early to enjoy them and, well, we did not get there early.  No problem, we ordered off the menu, mmmm, good!  It is also known for it's patio eating, partying, entertainment, FUN!  However, we chose to dine inside, which we totally enjoyed.

When we were finished with dinner we wandered back out to the patio area to find they had started the campfires in large fire pits.  These young men were waiting for a friend to come back with marshmallows, they were gonna burn em, errr, warm em up over the fire.


The outdoor patio and the fire pits were something different for us, lots of fun was being had.  Thanks Bob and Mina for the suggestion, and so glad that Ray and Coleen could join us.
