Never been to one before, but wanted to share this with you if you get to Arizona.
Having been a History Channel lover, and seeing stories about "Superstitious Mountain" and "Hidden Gold" (Prospector?). I, by accident, found a place I always wanted to see. Leaving my RI, in Scottsdale, drove 40 minutes to Goldfield Ghost Town. Thinking this was going to be another "Tourist trap", was I wrong! This was most interesting! The sight of Superstition Mountain, and the sights that I had seen on TV was wonderful. Here are a few photo's. Great place for the family. By the way, there was no charge to visit the ghost town, and it was delightful. Take the wonderful 20 minute narrow gauge train ride around the town, it also is fun.
Did not used to post things like this, but after meeting NUHusker, he enjoyed reading things like this, as I enjoyed reading posts from people like you and him! After all, I am writing this from a RI/S in Scottsdale. Here are a few pictures:
