  1. Wow I never knew this was a thing. My Dad is always out this way hanging at the Salt river. Maybe we will check this out next time.

  2. Superstition Mountain Museum sounds like my kind of place with the trails and history. And I would visit the Elvis Memorial Chapel.

    1. We spend a few hours there. One could spend time walking around and having a picnic and then walking around for a few more hours.
