Apache Trail

A beautiful morning greeted us and somewhat recovered from our long sojourn to Texas and back, we set out to the famous Apache Trail scenic drive, in the Superstition Wilderness east of Phoenix. The terrain here is desert-like for sure but also features rugged mountains, buttes, cliffs and lakes formed by the Roosevelt Dam.  Mild temperatures and very little traffic (save the FedEx truck that sped by at 50 mph on the incredibly rough gravel road) allowed for numerous stops to admire the vistas and take photos.  Along the way we had a picnic lunch at the stunning Fish Creek overlook and sampled prickly pear ice cream at the little town of Tortilla Flat.  We completed the day with a scrumptious dinner at Del Frisco’s GrillePhotos…
