Rt. 85 - Crater Range

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Rt. 85 - Crater Range

A couple driving along this stretch of Route 85 (called Crater Range, about ten miles north of Ajo, AZ) in the 1950s, on their way to their honeymoon in Lake Tahoe, were killed when their car struck a rock on the side of the road. Locals swear that if you drive this stretch of road after midnight you can see the couple and their car on the side of the road. Often they will try to get you to stop and help them.
