"Population 6!" Tortilla Flat by kazander

Pitstop on the Apache Trail

We stopped into this little western town for a quick bite to eat while driving along the Apache Trail in Tonto National Forest. We were thinking about stopping into the lakeside cafe at Canyon Lake, but something in the name made me really want to visit...

The added on phrase, "Population 6" seems to be part of the town's name. That tidbit of information is so descriptive, it's hard to leave it out. Really only a small cluster of buildings along a lonely strech of road, it's hard to imagine many more people living in this teeny place.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:funny little western town
  • Cons:food at the resturant is not top notch (or even close)
  • Last visit to Tortilla Flat: Dec 2005

    Gorgeous colours in your pics Amy. Shame about the dodgy food.

    A great little page on TF despite what it did to your stomach! The pics bring back good memories of my drive along the Apache Trail, but I only stopped here for a bottle of water!

    I love seeing the little out-of-the-way places on VT. We drove through a part of Tonto National Forest, but missed this one. Next time I'll stop, at least to make a visit to the men's room.

    I can only imagine what was in the men's room, Amy. ;> Still I'll steer clear of eating here but will return to see the rest of Tortilla Flat when you're finished.
