The lower elevation and higher temperatures change the landscape from lush pine forest to the Sonoran Deserts iconic saguaro cactus.
Tonto Creek and Roosevelt Lake are two water features that dominate life here. Tonto Creek flows down from high atop the Mogollon Rim before flowing into the Salt River and Roosevelt Lake. Ranches are prevalent along the creek in both Punkin Center and Tonto Basin and residents include year-round residents as well as vacation homeowners who are here for the area's natural beauty and vast recreation opportunities.
