The Apache Trail was a stagecoach run through the Superstition Mountains. Now it links Apache Junction with Theodore Roosevelt Lake through the Tonto National Forest and the rugged desert mountains. Part of the trail is unpaved and not something we would take our large RV on. There are four lakes on the Trail. We though we would check out Canyon Lake and go as far as Tortilla Flats, which is where the unpaved part starts. We are holding up on taking the whole all day trip for when we stay at Usery Park, our next destination. Driving through Fountain Hills on our way to the Trail, I got a quick shot of their famous fountain which goes off every hour. It is the world's fourth largest fountain that goes up to 562 feet in the air. It was built by Robert McCulloch the year before his Lake Havasu project, the reconstruction of the London Bridge.
We drove to Apache Junction and headed on the Apache Trail.
On Friday, we went to the Old Town Scottsdale Farmers Market. It is quite large with lots of locally grown produce and other interesting products. Of course we had to buy some. In addition to some needed produce, we bought an orange flavored horseradish, a corn relish, and a couple of bottles of barbeque sauce. They had one of my favorites, Raspberry Chipotle. We had fun sampling new tastes. They also have artisan breads, cheeses, meats and tamales, and much more.
