The Apache Trail (SR88) winds its way through the Fish Creek valley, in the Superstition Wilderness of Arizona.

   That's right!  This is the Apache Trail (aka Arizona State Route 88), as it winds east from its crossing of Fish Creek, on the north side of the Superstition Mountains.
   This photo is taken from the same road, before it descends to the right (out of the picture) and then back to the left, in this image.  Many people get white knuckles and start breathing rapidly when going down this stretch of the "highway".
   One time we saw an "18 wheeler" (a big truck, for the non-Americans in the audience) jack-knifed and stuck on the Fish Creek Bridge in this canyon.  The driver and the visiting Arizona Highway Patrol troopers were not happy.  How he even got that far is a mystery.
   You surely do not want to try bringing any long vehicle on this road.   And yes, it is dirt and gravel for a good deal of the way.  But definitely, it is one of the most scenic roads in Arizona.  Also, by the way, bring water with you, and a good spare tire!
