When I heard my buddy and I were taking a trip along the Apache Trail and riding the Dolly Steamboat, I got excited, but i thought my buddy and I would be cruising along inside a steamboat, and there would be air conditioner.
It was early day, however it was still over 69 degrees when my buddy and I got into the van at 6:30 AM; My friend and I traveled along the Apache Trail Scenic Drive Venture and headed east of the valley.
My friend and I were spoon deep into the Sonoran Desert. It was fun to stop at Tortilla Flat where my buddy and I got to eat dinner! Tortilla Flat is a small town of six people and was a stagecoach stop in Arizona, however once my buddy and I boarded the Dolly Steamboat, my buddy and I took a cruise around Canyon Lake. They told us to watch for eagles and long horn sheep, however I didn’t see any. I figured it was too sizzling for the animals to be out. I guessed they were smarter than I was, because it was now 105 degrees and it hadn’t peaked for the day. My friend and I got to see some incredible views when the cruise took us into the Sonora Desert.I heard the narrator talk about the Lost Dutchman State Park, however I was too busy looking for sheep and eagles, and didn’t catch what he was saying! When they said my buddy and I were going to take a ten minute walk into the desert to have some desert plants pointed out, I was done, however all I wanted was to find someplace where I could rest back and relax and forget about how sizzling it was, and how barren this part appeared. I just wanted to go home, and my neighbor agreed.
