After switching the Pig Farm, Apache Railway's Holbrook Turn is now headed back to the shops West of Snowflake, Arizona. The crew puts on a show as they throttle up from a stop with a pair of the railroad’s ALCOs, and the only C420 on the roster up front.

That Apache Railway's weekly turn to Holbrook departs Snowflake with APA 81 and 98 with 10 cars.
At the edge of that rock the water drops off to 60 feet deep. So basically it's the top of an underwater cliff.

The Apache Trail in Arizona was a stagecoach trail that ran through the Superstition Mountains. It was named the Apache Trail after the Apache Indians who originally used this trail to move through the Superstition Mountains.
The current Apache Trail links Apache Junction (33.4152°N 111.5807°W) at the edge of the Greater Phoenix area with Theodore Roosevelt Lake (33.6725°N 111.1531°W), through the Superstition Mountains and the Tonto National Forest.
Today, the majority of Apache Trail remains unpaved, turning into a dirt road a few miles up from Tortilla Flat, and continuing as such for nearly the full remainder of its length. The section east of Apache Junction is known officially as State Route 88. It is also the main traffic corridor through Apache Junction, turning into Main Street as the road passes into Mesa, and regains the Apache name by becoming Apache Boulevard in Tempe, ending at Mill Avenue. Prior to the completion of the Superstition Freeway in 1992, the Apache Junction portion of the Apache Trail was part of US Highway 60, which was rerouted to the Superstition Freeway once it was completed.
The Trail winds steeply through 40 miles (64 km) of rugged desert mountains, past deep reservoir lakes like Canyon Lake and Apache Lake. The narrow, winding road is unpaved from just east of the town of Tortilla Flat to Roosevelt Dam; there are steep cliff drops and little in the way of safety barriers. The trail requires caution when driving and it is not recommended for large RVs, SUVs, or caravans. Some large RV rental companies in the US do not allow their vehicles to be taken on this route.
Die Apache Trail Historic Road, auch AZ 88 genannt, östlich von Phoenix rühmt sich großer historischer, kultureller und landschaftlicher Bedeutung. Sie führt über 116 Kilometer von Apache Junction nach Globe-Miami, wo sich die 63 Kilometer lange Gila-Pinal Scenic Road direkt anschließt, die zurück nach Phoenix führt.
Zwischen Apache Junction und dem Tonto National Monument gehört der Apache Trail zu den landschaftlich reizvollsten Routen in den USA. Die abenteuerliche Fahrt ist ein unvergessliches Western-Erlebnis. Theodore Roosevelt sagte bei der Einweihung des nach ihm benannten Staudamms sinngemäß: „Im Apache Trail treffen das Großartige der Alpen, die Pracht der Rocky Mountains und die Herrlichkeit des Grand Canyons zusammen.“
Der Apache Trail folgt einem alten Pfad der Apachen durch die Felsschluchten des Salt River, führt jedoch an der Canyon-Seite höher hinauf, weil der Canyon jetzt teilweise in den Fluten des Salt Rivers und den sich anschließend bildenden Seen ertrunken ist. Kurz nach 1900 wurde er als Versorgungsstraße für den Bau des Theodore-Roosevelt-Damms angelegt. Heute führt er an einer Reihe attraktiver State Parks und kleiner Orte entlang und gewährt Zugang zu den schönen Superstition Mountains.

Impressive British Army Attack Helicopter Apache display involving major pyrotechnics. This picture is a montage of 2 shots taken seconds apart - the flames actually passed in front of the helicopter.
On March 3, 2002, Amtrak’s train No. 3, the Southwest Chief, wiggles through the tight confines of scenic Apache Canyon between Canyoncito and Lamy, New Mexico.
This mountain is named for the hundreds of Apache American Indians (whole families) that jumped to their death rather than be slaughtered or imprisoned by the soldiers hunting them down like animals.
Long exposure under the Apache Pier. This is the longest wooden pier on the east coast.

The traditional lands of the Apache Ndeh (The People) extended from Texas through New Mexico and Arizona into Mexico and California. Over time, the many bands of Apache were forcibly relocated to reservations. The San Carlos Apache Reservation was established in 1871. According to the U.S. Census, approximately 6,927 individuals live on the San Carlos Apache Reservation--1.8 million acres spanning three counties in eastern Arizona.
San Carlos Apache are known for their peridot jewelry and Apache basketry. Peridot is the birthstone for August and San Carlos is home to the world's largest deposit of the crystal.
More than half (65 percent) of households speak a language other than English.* Roughly 32 percent of all members are under 18 years of age, and the median age for the tribe is 28.1, compared to 37.1 for the state of Arizona. The San Carlos Apache Tribe has a poverty rate of 48 percent, which is significantly higher than Arizona's 17.7 percent poverty rate.
The Tribe operates Apache Gold Casino, a golf course, a commercial sawmill, a 500-acre farm, and cattle ranching operations.
Only a month or two before it was announced that the paper mill in Snowflake, AZ was closing, six Apache Alcos pull a loaded coal train south with all their might. A pleasant shortline adventure on a trip focused on mainline steam. May 2012.
