On the Apache Trail

It’s somehow appropriate that the two days I’m in Phoenix are the darkest, cloudiest, rainiest the Valley of the Sun have seen in years.

I took a long lunch and drove the Apache Trail to Tortilla Flat.

It’s a twisty road that has sheer cliffs on one side and sheer drop offs on the other. There are also a couple of one lane bridges along the way.

And various prickly flora.


But the coolest thing was a real life, Road Runner style flash flood at Tortilla Flats.


A couple of trucks went through while I was watching, but I didn’t want to risk turning the rental car into an impromptu raft ride.
