It was a glorious fall day in Arizona as we headed north up I-17 to the Stoneman Lake exit. Stoneman Lake and no water in it because of the drought, but the fall colors of the oak trees were in abundance. There is a community of summer homes on one end of the dry lake. We found a wet spot with a few cattails shedding their seeds into the wind. We tried a few of the roads going south and found the V-Bar Ranch house, also know as the Apache Maid house. It was still in relatively good repair and is a protected historical site. In many places we found ponderosa pine and oak trees. We also happened upon a pond with water which is great for reflection photos.
