Today was exceptional...75...nice! So we took a drive into the countryside. This time we went further then the Lost Dutchman State campground we had stayed at when we first arrived in town!
We would head up to Canyon Lake...about 15 miles further. It was a nice ride and we enjoyed seeing the ruggedness of the surroundings!
A one-lane bridge.
Someone had told us that just past the lake was nice place to stop and have a bite to eat...."Tortilla Flats" a Trading Post on the Apache Trail...so we did and there were many others too that were enjoying the afternoon with a ride!

|This is the skeleton of a Saguaro Cactus.|
|Everyone was enjoying the music & lunch!|
|Oh my! Look up there!|
We admired the motor bikes parked!

Can you believe this is January???
Goldfield Ghost Town
People could take a tour of an old mine for a fee,
but Nick & I just strolled around enjoying the old equipment used in those days!A tough life out here - especially in mid summer when the weather goes up to around 110F - HOT!
On the building of this shop was this old trap... with a red button on it and it said
"for lower prices push this button".
.......well DON'T push the red button....ouch!
There was a old church building that is still being used on Sunday's!
Church service at 11:00 am....we'll certainly come back and visit this church!
|There's the Superstition Mountains in the background- nice!|
A fun day discovering the area!
