The Apache Trail and Tortilla Flats

We pick up Granddad and Darlene and take off for a daylong drive around the Apache Trail, a scenic drive outside of Mesa AZ. We stop several places along the way, but the most fun stop was Tortilla Flats. We stopped there for a late breakfast and enjoyed their crazy decor. Joe talked us into sitting at the counter, where the stools are horse saddles:

I went to use the ladies room and found the room was filled with people taking pictures, so I said I would come back later. Of course when I came back, I took a photo or two also:

The walls at the restaurant in Tortilla Flats are covered with $1 bills that people have left there. Joe wanted to leave a $1 bill there, so he signed his name on one and our waitress stapled it to the wall behind the bar. If you're ever visiting Tortilla Flats, look for his $1 on the wall behind the counter:

Our other interesting stop was at a park with old indian cliff dwellings. We walked up to the cliff dwellings in the side of the mountain and enjoyed the wonderful view of the surrounding mountains and reservoir:
