Tonto National Monument

I was born in Phoenix, AZ… and have lived here all my adult life (despite the fact that I have traveled and lived in a dozen or so states).  So we are pretty familiar with AZ, and her backroads.

But, I have never been to Tonto National Monument, until this week.  It was a first for both John (who moved here when he was 11 mo. old) and myself.

Despite the fact that I was less than impressed, it was a good trip, a nice hike (which Journey was marginally allowed on), and very scenic.

We loved the view of Roosevelt Lake from the ruins more than we liked the ruins themselves.  It was blue blue sky day… but made for a nice diversion for the day.
