Took FOREVER!!!There were lots of one-lane bridges.
Wild flowers were starting to bloom.
There were 3 lakes along the way: Canyon, Apache and Roosevelt. Roosevelt is my favorite.Once we got to Tonto NM, I realized I'd forgotten to make reservations to tour the upper cliff dwelling. (Oh, well--we're not going back!) We walked up the paved 1/2 mile trail to the lower cliff dwelling, through the saguaro & cholla. There were more wildflowers along the path.
We could actually go into some of the rooms in the cliff dwellings built by the Salados.
We drove home the long way--George wasn't at all interested in eating more dust on the Apache Trail!
