Cellpic Sunday – 20 March 2016

Superstitions-1Goldfield, Arizona.

Steeped in legend and the mystery of the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine, the Superstition Mountains have fired the imagination of men and women for over a century. At the east end of the Phoenix metro, Apache Junction and the Apache Trail find themselves in the shadow of the Superstitions.

Jacob Walz and his claim are now lost to history and even today, there are those who dream of finding the old miner’s stake and striking it rich. On Saturday, we spent the afternoon at Goldfield, a recreated mining town, long dead since 1898. This photograph of the Superstitions was taken with my Samsung S6 Cell phone and edited on my iPad. The rule for Cellpic Sunday is simple. The image must be captured and edited using a mobile device.

  1. Nice & well done! I’ve always wondered about this place. This area is seeped in superstition, but I’ve often thought if all the stories are really true. If the Lost Dutchman Gold is truly there, I don’t think that it will be ever found . . . if it really exists. I’ve read that a number of gold hunters have died here for reason’s that are unknown. They go up into these mountains and never return. I’ve watched the program Ghost Hunters in which they snooped around the old Goldfield Hotel that is haunted by miners from the past. An interesting documentary to watch. I would love to see this place for myself.

  2. A testament to your adventures! The real treasure is travel, as travel is life and worth more than any treasure, real or superstitious… 😉
