A Day in the Superstition Mountains

The head of the Superstition Mountains

Church building used in many Western movies

Sunset yards away from Pat and Pudge's patio. Gorgeous!

Today Pudge drove us to the Superstition Mountains. This took us through desserts where we saw many varieties of cacti and lots of hawks. We stopped at one area where buildings of long ago have been used in many Western movies. We went inside a small church and also visited with a grounds keeper who was raking "fruit" from the snake cactus.

We continued on up the mountains to Tortilla Flats where we had lunch in a tavern/bar. The food was really good! While some of us shopped, Aunt Liz listened to a Country Western trio.

Tonight we had an alfresco dinner on the patio, just after the sunset. It was 75 degrees - unbelievable for March 12!
