Benson AZ, Last Hike in Apache Junction

And last set of pics from Apache Junction!  These are from the last hike we took at Canyon Lake.  Yes, it is in the Superstition Wilderness area.  Little change of scenery though, water.

Today is our last day in Benson.  We leave tomorrow morning for Marana, AZ.  About 70 miles from here north of Tucson.  We have some cool things lined up there also, of course.  Next post will be of pics from here in Benson area and we have done so many things in these past 6 days!  Tombstone, Ciricahua Natl Mon, Fort Huachuca, wineries, Coronado Natl Mon, Fort Bowie, Bisbee copper mine tour, etc.!!!

But first, here is the Boulder Canyon Trl:

The slick rock the horses were climbing there was crazy!

See the window in the rock?
