Day 6 of our Southwest Road Trip. Phoenix to near Gila New Mexico. 

This morning we left Phoenix and took the Apache Trail up into the Superstition Mountains. First we came to Canyon Lake.  The road turned to gravel and the scenery to stunning canyons. 


After about 30 miles of gravel we came to Theadore Roosevelt Dam where we had lunch. 


The bridge by the dam is the longest steel single span bridge in a the United States. 


After getting back to pavement we drove into New Mexico to a cabin near Gila. Right now we are sitting on the porch drinking wine and enjoying the peace and quiet. 


The view is lovely. 

I wasn’t sure whether I would mention it… but on a remote road near the eastern Arizona border we were pulled over by a very polite Arizona Highway Patrol officer who issued us a citation for flagrantly wasting finite resources!
