We took these photos in November 2006 after the water level in Apache Lake was lowered by fifty feet to enable crews to perform maintenance on Horse Mesa Dam. We wandered the shores while the lake was lowered finding artifacts, boat anchors, lots of fishing lures and even spotting some once submerged railroad tracks that were used to transport materials to Roosevelt Dam during its construction in 1906.
Apache Lake has always been a favorite place for us. It's located below Roosevelt Lake along the Apache Trail. The scenic views from Apache Lake are some of the prettiest in Arizona. Great camping and fishing! When boating on Apache Lake you pass canyon walls rising hundreds of feet above the lake, rivaled only by the submerged canyons below.
