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:

Here’s some more photos along the Beartooth Highway.

I exited Yellowstone National Park’s northeast exit and rode along the Beartooth Highway.  The ride took me to 10,947 feet before decending down the mountain into Montana.  A windy road with lots of zigzags and switchbacks.  As I crossed over the top it was quite windy as I rode through some snow flurries.
