A taste of the kind of desert landscapes you'll remember from old cowboy films comes courtesy of the Apache Trail. This narrow, twisting road, which is part gravel, snakes alongside mountains, through ghost towns, past giant cacti and spiky century plants, and even takes in a couple of lakes. It's a spectacularly scenic drive - especially in the spring when the wildflowers are blooming.
