I wrote about it before, but while Ashlee & Kevin were visiting us in Phoenix we took them on part of the Apache Trail because to us it felt like the most Arizona thing we had done. The trail winds you through the desert and mountains and it looks like what I imagine when I think of Arizona. We didn’t do the entire 7 hour trek that Skyler and I had done previously, but we did the first chunk of it going a little bit past Tortilla Flat (which I think is the best part anyway). We stopped several times along the way to get lots of pictures of course…
The Apache Trail is a 40 mile drive winding through the Superstition Mountains in Tonto National Forest and was once a stagecoach trail created by the Apache Indians. As you can see, the views are endless and spectacular!
Our final stop along the way was in Tortilla Flat. A cute little town with a meager population of 6 along the Apache Trail. The main attraction there is the funky restaurant. As I said in my previous review, the food is just okay. It is your typical bar type food so nothing spectacular. But the eclectic decorations and quirky atmosphere are what make this place special. The walls, beams, and ceiling are all covered in dollar bills that previous guests have signed on their visits. So this time we left our mark and signed a couple of one’s to be hung with the others. Fun times!
