Sunday, November 23, 2014 Yesterday I went on a spontaneous quest to ride the Apache Trail Scenic Byway, AZ 88. I grabbed my camera and headed south on AZ 87, hands freezing in my thick gloves that prevented on-the-fly pictures until it warmed up a little. I got gas in Payson and changed gloves. Being in no rush, I explored a little on the way south to Apache Junction. Tonto National Forest road 414 heads northwest out of Rye, AZ. I rode about 3 miles along it, then turned around. I took this little spur to the west a little further down AZ 87 (The Beeline Highway). It just made a "T", but offered some nice views. Further along AZ 87.
