Goldfield Ghost Town.  Location: 4650 N Mammoth Mine Rd, Apache Junction, AZ 85119.

Located East of Phoenix, AZ.  A nice relaxing place to walk around and take in the sights of the old Ghost Town.  After my walk around town, I sat on the patio with a nice cold drink and enjoyed a fantastic view of the Superstition Mountains.  I’ve been here several times and will definitely go back.

I took a ride over to the Superstition Mountain Museum.  They’re located to the east of Phoenix, AZ in the east valley, close to Apache Junction.  A nice place with a great view of the Superstition Mountains.

I won’t go into detail about this place, if you’re interested, just click on the link in the fist paragraph to see their website.

Here’s a few photos:

The Phoenix area Harley-Davidson dealers have put together the 1st Annual PhoenixBike Fest this year next to the Wildhorse Pass Hotel & Casino. Here’s a few photos I took today (April 5, 2014). SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA Harley-Davidson’s trailer with the new 2014 motorcycles. This is main reason I went here today to take a Demo Ride on a new Tri-Glide. SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAThis is the bike I was able to ride, a blue Tri-Glide.   After watching a short video, I got to ride it for about 10-15 minutes.  It definitely rides different than a 2 wheel motorcycle.  I like it.

IMG_3246This may not be my typical motorcycle blog entry, however I did ride my motorcycle to see this!

I was fortunate enough to get a ticket to view the Solarimpulse aircraft at the Phoenix International Airport yesterday.

The Solarimpulse is attempting to fly across the USA using solar power only.  This is the 1st leg of the journey that began in San Francisco.  It arrived early Saturday morning on May 4th, 2013.  Next stop will be Texas.  It’s a lot bigger than I first imagined it would be.  The wingspan is a wide as an airliner.  It’s so wide I wasn’t able to get a photo of the entire aircraft inside this temporary hanger they had set up.

My photos don’t do this amazing aircraft justice.   Click on the link below to see the official website.
