We stopped in Ventucopa to sample and buy some $7 bags of roasted, organic flavored pistachios in the shell (9 flavors offered); they were great. Friendly staff. The store also sells a wide range of pistachio products in other foods as well as gift samplers. Stop by and pick up something, you won't be disappointed.

Kind of desolate, high plains drifter terratory. Too bad the Buckhorn Cafe has closed - they were a great destination for bikers to go to breakfast! Only place to gas up between Hwy 101 and Maricopa. Can be chilly in the winter and HOT in the summer, so be prepared!
