Questions for Map 1

1. Locate Payson, Globe and Apache Junction on Map 1. Using the scale, how far away is Tonto National Monument from each of these communities? How did the location of Tonto National Monument help protect the cliff dwellings?

2. Look at the location of Tonto National Monument on Map 1. Since none of the highways on this map existed during the time of the Salado (AZ 288, AZ 87, AZ 88, US 60), what does the location of Tonto National Monument tell you about the area? How did people reach the area before these major roads were constructed?

* The map on this screen has a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a larger version of Map 1, but be aware that the file may take as much as 35 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
