The Apache Trail {in photographs}

During my trip to Arizona earlier this month, one of my favorite days was spent driving the Apache Trail. It’s one of America’s historic byways and absolutely breathtaking.

Apache Lake

Roosevelt Dam

{after 22 miles of gravel you come around a bend to see the Roosevelt Dam. I love the little carved out building near the water}

Happy weekend!
