Fort Apache, Arizona~Outdoor Wednesday~081711
Today hubby and I drove out to Fort Apache, which is in the White Mountain Apache Reservation. Did you know that during the time it was an active Army fort, it was never attacked? There were and are no walls or fences around it. It just sits atop a plateau, with good water running nearby, alone and silent. Today the grounds are used as a school and we saw some of the students there for the first time. We usually visit the fort in either the autumn or during spring break! So, it was nice to have people around! I wouldn't recommend visiting it during August, however! It was hot and dry and we got tired and left without taking many photos. We drove back to Pine Top/Lakeside for lunch and then returned to the cabin to await the coming daily thunderstorm. It arrived at 8:00 p.m. To see other outdoor scenes, please go to: http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/
