Tortilla Flat and Olive Oil

We  visited Tortilla Flat before.  Frankly, it is pretty much a tourist place.  It is a pretty drive getting there and beyond, though.  Here are several pictures from that drive this morning. It was a surprise to me when I first saw these rugged mountains so close to the Phoenix area. Unfortunately, all the Tonto National Forest campgrounds are closed.   It’s too bad because this would be a beautiful place to stay a few days.

Once again Lynn & Kay prepared a delicious meal.  We are getting spoiled.
