A grand view of the Superstition Mountains in Arizona. Canon 50d.
Featured Here

These mountains were named for the many legends that surround them. The Lost Dutchman gold mine lies somewhere in these mountains. Whether this mine ever existed is unclear but many have and still do look for it.

The Indians have a legend of the Little People or “Tuar-Tums,” who live below the Salt River Valley, or Valley of the Sun. Sources have claimed that “little men” that live within the mountain have been seen on top of ridges in the Superstitions, as if they were guarding something such as an entrance to an underground system.

The Superstition Mountains, rise to a height of 3,000 feet above the surrounding desert floor and dominates the eastern fringe of the Salt River Valley. Mountain peaks tower 6,000 feet above sea level and deep canyons dissect the wilderness region.

The gateway to the Superstition Mountains in USA is the Goldfield Ghost Town. An authentic 1890’s ghost town with underground mine tours. Only narrow gauge railroad in operation in Arizona (36 inches). The
Goldfield Ghost Town, as all ghost towns would not be complete without horses, wagons, carriages and of course a saloon.
