Desert to Tall Pines – Part 3

Back in April we spent a weekend exploring some of Rim Road, and then down Desert to Tall Pines Scenic Byway south to Roosevelt Lake.

In this video we explore the east side of Roosevelt Lake on Forest Service Rd 60 (A-Cross Rd.). We started at Willow, and ended over at Gardens East.  The road straight thru is about 30 miles in length, but with the various side roads to explore took us most of the day and we probably ended up with about 50 miles on the odometer.

The lake itself was created by the construction of the dam in 1911, making it the oldest artificial reservoir in Arizona.
