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.

Here in Arizona it’s not unusual to see a Horse, Car and Motorcycle in the same parking lot.

This was the first time I’ve stopped at  The Hitching Post  Pizza Pub in Apache Junction, AZ  (Near the Superstition Mountains).  A nice place with plenty of seating inside and outside on the raised deck patio.   It seemed to be a popular place.  You can’t tell by this photo, but there were more motorcycles in the parking lot than cars on this Saturday afternoon.  I’m sure I’ll be back.

Todays ride took me to Goldfield Ghost Town, located located 4.5 miles N/E of Apache Junction, Arizona on the historic Apache Trail.

Set your GPS coordinates to:

Goldfield Ghost Town
4650 N Mammoth Mine Rd
Goldfield, AZ 85219

The town has a real western feel to it.  The town has a saloon, a narrow gauge railroad, mine tours, a museum, a mystery shack, livery stables, a reptile exhibit, gold panning and more!

The parking area is not paved, so if it’s a windy or rainy day, be prepaired for your vehicle to get a little dirty.

Motorcycle Along the Bush Hwy NE of Phoenix AZ

Posted in Arizona, Cactus, Motorcycle, Motorcycle Rides, Motorcycles, Superstition Mountains AZ on August 28, 2012 by DRF

I took a short 40 mile ride along the Bush Highway NE of Phoenix AZ today in this 100 degree plus weather.  I sure am looking forward to summer being over.  I prefer to ride when the temperatures are in the 70’s and 80’s.  Anyway, I stopped a few times to get some desert photos.  It’s still a little early for the desert flowers to start blooming, but when they do, it’ll make for some nice photos.

Superstition Mountains – East of the Phoenix Arizona

I took a ride out East of Phoenix, AZ this morning near the Superstition Mountains.  Here’s a couple of photos of the Arizona desert.  A nice cool morning ride.

What a Difference a Day Makes – Superstition Mountains in AZ

Posted in Arizona, Motorcycles, Superstition Mountains AZ on April 10, 2011 by DRF

This is the same shot of the Superstition Mountains as yesterday (see yesterdays post) from our backyard.  All the snow has melted.  That didn’t take long.  It looks like it’s going to be a nice week to ride in Arizona.

Snow on Arizona Mountain Tops Today

Posted in Arizona, Superstition Mountains AZ on April 9, 2011 by DRF

I didn’t ride the motorcycle today.  It was raining, it was cold…  Excuses-Excuses.  What a big baby!  Maybe tomorrow.

It may be difficult to see the snow in this small photo, click on it for a better view.

It’s beginning to turn green here in the desert along with a little snow on the mountain tops.  Snow on the top of Superstition Mountains today. On Friday April 1st we had our first 100 degree day in Phoenix for 2011. Todays temperatures were in the mid 40’s.  Next week we’ll be back to the 80’s.  April weather is a little crazy in Arizona.
