My wife and I will be in Arizona for a week in late October. We arrive in Phoenix at 10:00 on a Saturday morning. My original plan was to go directly to Desert Botanical Gardens, but I was wondering... Would it be better to just cruise the Apache trail to to 188 then drive back to Scottsdale via 60? Is this a longer drive than it looks to be on the map? Would the Gardens be a better choice than this desert drive?
