The Long and Winding Road (The Beatles)

Frommer’s Guidebooks states the Apache Trail as being the ‘The best scenic drive in Arizona’.
It would take many visits to Arizona to agree or disagree… but even after the Grand Canyon drive, the Petrified Forest Drive, the Jerome to Sedona Drive etc., we have to say it is hard to judge. (especially since the most scenic and dangerous part of the Apache Trail is closed, maybe to never reopen to motor vehicles again…)


The museum at the base of Superstition Mountain, the start of the trail, is quite informative,


Superstition Mountain

the walking trails as well…

Sets from movies filmed nearby are on display. Elvis, not Yolande is the famous actor here lol.

The winding road leads to Tonto National Forest and Canyon Lake ….What a view!

Then on to Tortilla Flats, (the end of the trail for now) and the last surviving stagecoach stop on Apache trail. Population, 6.

The few buildings standing offer a lot of history (or legends).


And some are very entertaining…What did this person do to deserve this??


With these rules, who knows…


Who’s who who’ve been through…Tortilla Flats of course…


On our way back, on those winding roads…


Roger says, look, we could drive this road with the motorhome… 14 ft clearance. ha! ha!


We stop at Goldfield Ghost Town.  Again history,


and fun…


and ice cream to top off the day 😊

Thank you Roger for bringing us back home safely!
