Traveled to Tortilla Flat

Recently while we were near Apache Junction, Arizona at the Lost Dutchman State Park camp ground we heard about what was supposed to be a very nice drive to visit the store at Tortilla Flat, Arizona. It is located a few miles beyond Canyon Lake. While the drive was on a good road it was very curvy and had some pretty steep hills. It also had some wonderful views of canyons and gorgeous mountains, unfortunately it seems as though all the powerlines ran along the same route so the photo opportunities were nonexistent. We do have some dash cam footage and we hope to get it edited in a few days. I will post it in a new post when it is finished.

Below are a few images of the lake and some of its visitors.

The lake is surrounded by several very tall bluffs.

It also has a variety of avian visitors.

after spending a bit of time at the lake we continued on up the Apache Trail Scenic byway to the small settlement of Tortilla Flat. It primarily consists of a lot of old time memorabilia scattered everywhere and a small strip of stores. A bar/restaurant, a store selling touristy things and one or two others. We did not stay long as there was not much of interest to us. Below are a couple of images from there.

That’s all for now, hopefully you will enjoy the video once I get it completed,
