More Arizona Memories

April 4

These are the Superstition Mountains.
We'd studied these mountains last Fall during tutoring sessions. Briefly, Jacob Waltz discovered a gold mine and seemed to have plenty of money. Just prior to his death, he gave a clue as to the location of the mine. Many people have searched for this mine, over the years. And many people have died trying to find it. (I have no idea if it is still "lost.")

This is the "Superstition Saloon" in Tortilla Flat, where we had our lunch.
FYI: Tortilla Flat is now a town with five residents.
It used to be on a stagecoach line.

(I don't want to be superstitious, but do these fellows look suspicious?)

Did they peek into the women's restroom??

After lunch we headed for a boat ride on Canyon Lake.

The circular shapes are actually petrified logs within the rock "walls."

Can you spot the big horn sheep?

Bobbie, We did have a great time. Our friends and family were wonderful hosts/hostesses. I'll not belabor our vacation, but I have one more post to make. I view blogging as the creation of giant scrapbook. :-)

What a lovely landscape AZ has--I love the mountains. Tutoring lessons? Did you study to go to AZ? :)

Hi Monica, :-) I tutor three children after school... one Tues, one Wed, and one Thursday. They each read this little story about Jacob Waltz and his mine. It was fun to take the photo back to the kids this week!

The experts keep this drug in a SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) group of drugs as most of its attributes are exactly what it requires for becoming a part of this group.
