Dirt road from Tortilla Flat, if not before. On the last trip I drove all the way to Apache Lake in a two-wheel drive rental car. This was some years ago, so the road may be paved now.

Tortilla Flat is a genuine mining "ghost" settlement, with not a hint of Disney-fication, as I remember. To European eyes, a real gem. Apache Lake was superb; I boated and swam. Not sure if I was permitted to do the latter. On that occasion the views back down the track towards the mountains on the drive back to Phoenix in the evening light were extraordinarily beautiful.

Last time I was in the southwest, I was able to spend about six weeks exploring New Mexico and Arizona -- that was seven years ago. Your imagery has got me thinking it is time to return to Arizona (although I'll be sure to bring my papers!).

Back on topic: Tinderbox 5.5 has been released. Its major new feature is sync-ing with Simplenote on the iPad, iPod or iPhone, like Notational Velocity.
