Where is the Lost Dutchman?






Since we won't be going to our favorite vacation spot (California) any time soon we are going to start exploring Arizona. I found a website that tells you all about the best places to visit in AZ. We will be going on a lot of hikes and exploring a lot of awesome places. We started with the Superstition mountains. We were going to go hiking but when we finally got to the trail we were going to hike we looked at it and it would be really hard for Carter and Parker. So we went off road to try to find some other trails. We ended up at a Museum for the lost dutchman who was on a search for gold. Gold has been found many times in the superstition mountain. Chandler we need to get a metal detector! I wouldn't mind finding a gold nugget or two. So we toured the museum which was full of old treasure maps and a lot of other neat artifacts. The museum was right next to an old movie set for many old movies that were filmed three. It was burnt down a while ago but the barn was still there and so was the chapel where Elvis Presley performed at. We thought it was really cool. Then we visited the goldfield ghost town which we always have fun at. The superstition mountains are so grand and they look fake! I'm so glad that we are getting back to enjoying nature. I have missed it!

What a fun day trip. Now that the weather is starting to change a little I'm ready to start getting out as well. I was just thinking today about taking the family up to South Mountain like we did with the activity girls, that was a fun trip. What's the website you found with all the fun AZ places to explore?
