Celebrating Arizona’s Beauty and the History of its People


Our chapter is named for the Apache Trail, also known as Arizona State Route 88, which begins east of Mesa and ends at Roosevelt Dam.
Tonto National Monument, near Roosevelt Dam, contains cliff dwellings built and occupied by the Salado peoples of the 14th century.


The Apache Trail has its own red, white, and blue palette, based on the red sandstone of the Superstition Mountains, bright sunlight, and purplish blue of distant Four Peaks, captured in these stunning photographs by Trudi Arledge.
Soft and bright colors of wildflowers provide a seasonal accent.
