Theodore Roosevelt Dam is the big dam in Arizona, it forms Canyon lake and as the main Dam it feeds water to the Valley then in turn Stewart Mountain Dam forms Saguaro Lake, The Salt River and the Butcher Jones Recreation area and even the Tempe Town lake way over towards Phoenix.
All of this is going on within the Tonto National Forest, which is huge. I have pics of all this.
Makes sense to start with the Theodore Roosevelt Dam since that is the source of ALL the water.
Front and Back of the Dam. Every pic i post either the VTX or the Shadow Aero were there, like trusty steeds. 😎

i didn't say "Next up" right away 😁 i'm taking a break from the pics right now, got stuff to do. But i'll be back on this to complete the "Dam" series for the Roosevelt Dam system. ....to be continued.Stewart Mountain Dam is the next Dam down from Roosevelt Dam, it's this Dam that formed Saguaro Lake. It's my most frequented spot along with the Trail head followed by the Butcher Jones recreation area.

Water is high, the front of the Dam is in the middle right in this pic.

Just looking at the pics again, Beautiful shots, i've ridden by Kohl's ranch a number of times, love it up there!!VTXArizona,
Nice pics, stirred up some memories. When I was stationed at Luke AFB (1981/82) we used to go camping in that area quite often, even in Winter. We knew we were getting close when we came upon Kohl's ranch. Wonder if it still looks the same. Left to right, Jim, Scott, Me (another Jim), Tom.
