Lost Dutchman State Park on the trip to Phoenix November 30th to December 3rd…
These are the Superstition Mountains and one of the trails climbs up to a formation called the FlatIron…it looks like an old metal iron.
So we started on a hike…The Saguaros made me feel like I was in a western movie.
We climbed up towards some other trail before returning to the Syphon Trail.
Looking back towards our campsite and Apache Junction.
We found a couple of very large rocks.
On the trail looking down.
Found this strange flying thing.
Then evening arrived and the Saguaro looked lonely.
The morning was just lovely.
Then onto another hike.
We had planned on one trail, then someone said there was a view…soooo….
Then on the walk…
a couple of bi-planes flew by.
Some of the climb had lots of rocks.
Interesting skies too…
Then retuning back to the campground below us.
Then someone suggested a drive towards Tortilla Flats and the scenery was once again – Wow!
Then the next day’s hike started with this guy.
In the last couple of posts I had talked about our bicycles and the rack that was destroying them…This is what it looked like before.
One of the places to go in Phoenix was an REI…where we picked up a new and functional bike rack.
We then drove to a beautiful and fully serviced campsite in Mesa to meet up with friends.
We went to a place called the Organ Spot…where the organ was Amazing! One person, playing a lot of instruments with an organ and lights to light up the active instruments. Lots of fun.
Next we head to our first boondock of the trip and the excitement of OK corral.
