We moved from Catalina State Park towards the Phoenix area and into a nearby town of Apache Junction where there is an outstanding state park called Lost Dutchman right at the foot of the Superstition Mountains and you guessed it the location some say of the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine. This mountain rises out of the desert and is spectacular to see.
Nearby is a old mining town called Goldfield
We did grab a quick dinner at the Mammoth Saloon, not to bad, and the view was great at sundown…
Now the view changes quite a lot from sunset to sunrise …
With this as our backdrop, it was hard not to just sit and relax all day long….
We did do two day trips, first was to drive the Apache Trail to Roosevelt Lake, 2/3 of the trip was on a dirt trail
Back to pavement and a long loop around the mountains on the way back. We stopped at Saguaro Lake, which was very nice and jhad a large marina that had tours of the lake, which we decided to take a few days later….
Saguaro Lake tour was next up on our list….
So that was Lost Dutchman, way too much to see and do for the 6 days we were there, but the views were spectacular and the camera only shows 1/3 of what you see….
Time to move to Lake Havasu….
