The Apache Trail
Finally … we arrive at end of the trail – The Apache Trail.
This is rugged country. The Apache Trail is billed as a “scenic drive”, but I’m sure there are folks who might challenge that. So if this kind of hilly desert country isn’t your cup of tea, and the slow (often only going 5 or 10 miles an hour) drive for three hour (or more) over a gravel road that it pretty rough in places, then you might want to do something else. But we braved it … and it was pretty good.

Apology for the lack of photos along the Trail.
All in all, a great experience …
