Wikieup pond in 1964?

Back in June 1964 (almost 50 years ago now), Ken Kesey's magic bus 'Furthur' made a historic stop at a pond near Wikieup, alongside Rt 93.

Video is available at
from 37:00 to 47:00 .

I'm trying to figure out exactly where that pond was, because I think the editors of the movie got it turned around-- the bus was headed south towards Phoenix, not north from Phoenix.

I'm not convinced Wikieup was even the closest town, and the biker they send for help takes an awfully long time to get back with a tractor.

Does anyone recognize the mountains or stream or any other landmarks?
