I am the mother of a son and a daughter who loved offroad sports! As they were growing up, we would load up our bikes (yes, it's true), and off we would go to the desert to ride our offroad toys. We had bikes, ATC's, go-cart type toys, and tents. My children would have so much fun even if it was just the family. Other times we would take off with a group of other families and stay in motorhomes, etc. for three or four days and just ride, ride, ride.
As I drive to Queen Creek along Ironwood, I remember those days when we pass the Motopark just about five miles south of Baseline on the west side. There are always groups of motorhomes, young kids jumping their bikes over the myriad whoops the faster the better.
As we continue further down Ironwood into Queen Creek, we pass two golf courses. One is a little nine-hole course - Apache Sun - which looks interesting. I haven't played there yet, but shall give it a try very soon. The other one is The Links which is one of my husband's favorite. He plays on a league each Friday morning.
Queen Creek is a growing area with many families, new schools, new stores, Wallmart, shopping, markets coming in almost daily. As Ironwood continues to completion (it has been widened substantially and the bridge is half finished), the commute to and fro will ease substantially.
One of the communities that I particularly like is Circle Cross. Just south of the railroad and just north four miles from Johnson Ranch, this community is delightful. A brand new K-8 school located within Circle Cross makes it much more convenient for those living there. Several builders are still building in that community at GREAT prices and huge incentives. Very affordable housing is still available.
I had someone ask me today. What part of our country have you enjoyed the most! I told them - here! In our area! We live in a beautiful area.
