Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests, Arizona : 1977 (SuDoc A 13.28:AP 1/996)
The Apache and Sitgreaves National Forests, administrated as one National Forest, encompass two million acres of magnificent mountain country in east-central Arizona.
The Sitgreaves was named for Captain Lorenzo Sitgreaves, a government topographical engineer who conducted the first scientific expedition across Arizona in the early 1850s. On the Sitgreaves, the major attractions for visitors are the Mogollon Rim and eight coldwater lakes. From the Mogollon Rim's 7,600-foot elevation, vista points provide inspiring views of the lowlands to the south. The Mogollon Rim, names after Don Jaun Ignacio Flores Mogollon (pronounced: muggy-own) who was the governor of the Province of New Mexico from 1712 to 1715, extends 200 miles from Flagstaff, Arizona, into western New Mexico.
