I'm in the middle of my route and was looking for some alternatives to heading over the unnamed (Blackjack) pass due to the weather and lack of hotels/services along the ACA route between Safford and Silver City. Originally I was going to camp along this section but it is just to darn cold for that this week!
My current plan is to go from Safford to Lordsburg, NM and then follow Highway 90 up to Silver City. The only concern I have at this point is the weather - I'll be in Silver City mid next week and it still looks cold but it doesn't look like it is going to snow. As long as any precipitation has not accumulated on the ground I think I'll be okay...
Thanks for the advice on where to stay.
