Description


Located just east of Phoenix, Arizona is a rough, mountainous region where people sometimes go... only to never be seen again. It is a place of mystery, of legend and lore and it is called Superstition Mountain. According to history, both hidden and recorded, there exists a fantastic gold mine here like no other that has ever been seen. It has been dubbed the “Lost Dutchman Mine” over the years and thanks to its mysterious location, it has been the quest of many an adventurer... and a place of doom to luckless others. excerpt "Unexplained America"

Legends old and new abound concerning Superstition Mountains, this was just one of them. I was out there alone just before dark, it was extremely windy that night. The place had an eerie quiet about it. Goldfield Ghost town is just up the road from here, I would love to go back and check that out.

Take the space out of the word superstition when you paste it in your browser window. I hate how this site messes up links

Whoa They just showed on the news A helicopter search. 3 guys disappeared up there on Friday who decided to go search for the gold. They were not planning on staying overnight. Their cars are sitting in a parking lot.

Fantastic shot, Rhonda! I'm glad that you made it out to tell the tale! It sounds like a spooky place...but it looks so beautiful! You must be extremely brave to be out there by yourself! I'm betting the ghost town would be awesome!
