Goldfield Ghost Town

A couple weeks ago we went out to see the Goldfield Ghost Town, near Apache Junction. Admission is free - except for the tours -

And if you're so inclined, you can ride your horse there. The Superstition Mountains make a beautiful background.

And here's the best thing - lots of rusty stuff!

More rusty stuff!

And even a rusty old cell tower!!!

On weekends they have a gun fight. It starts out calm enough -

But soon there are dead bodies all over the place.

Never fear, eventually they all get up and pose for pictures.

Spring is definitely in the air. I love the palo verde tree blooms.

The birds were gathering nesting material -

And I was trying to pick up a cowboy. Unfortunately, he ended up being kind of a dummy...
