Photographer's Note

I took this last week not too far from where I live. Although this is desert, it is also in a natonal forest. I will be posting more from there in the future.

The Apache National Forest lies adjacent to the east side of the Fort Apache and the San Carlos Indian Reservations. It runs along the Mogollon Rim and the White Mountains in east-central Arizona and extending into New Mexico, USA. It has a total area of 1,813,601 acres (7,339.38 km²). With its high elevation and cool summer breezes it is a popular weekend destination from the hot desert for Phoenix, Arizona residents. It contains over 400 species of wildlife. The Apache is also noted for its trout streams and high-elevation lakes and meadows. There is extensive hiking and camping in many of the areas. The Apache National Forest is named after the tribes that settled in this area. It ranges in elevation from 3500 feet near Clifton to nearly 11,500 feet on Mount Baldy.
