Next, it's time for a relaxing steamboat cruise on one of Arizona's most beautiful desert lakes - Canyon Lake. Your cruise aboard the Dolly Steamboat will give you a chance to catch a glimpse of big horn sheep and bald eagles as well as learn about the Apaches from your boat captain.
After your cruise, enjoy a stop at the "bustling" town of Tortilla Flat (population 6). This small Arizona town is the last surviving stagecoach stop along the Apache Trail. A lunch stop will be made at either Canyon Lake Marina or Tortilla Flat.

Wonderful tour going up the Apache Trail where mule teams once hauled the men and materials that made Roosevelt Lake. This amazing story comes to life on this tour. Plus seeing the desert is marvelous, and our tour guide was most informative about everything in Phoenix. The cruise was magical; we floated past canyon walls spotting eagles and big horn desert sheep. Loved the old mining town of Goldfield where we had just enough time to tour the gold mine on our own; it was amazing. The hard life of the miners boggles the mind. The guide there was also most entertaining and informative, but u need to ask if there's enough time to squeeze in this extra. I recommend you do it if possible. The lunch stop at Tortilla Flat was fine but we used the time there to see he tiny museum there about Roosevelt Lake.
