Apache County is situated in northeastern Arizona bordering Utah and New Mexico.
With an area exceeding 11,000 square miles, Apache County is larger than
Massachusetts, but has a population density of only about six people per square mile.
Over seventy-five percent of the people identify themselves as American Indian,
and more than half of Apache County's residents say that they speak the Navajo language at home.
The main towns are Eagar, Springerville and St. Johns, all with populations
below 5,000 souls and elevations above 5,000 feet.
Most of the historic sites are along Old Route 66 and Highway 191.
