The Northwest corner of Superstition Mountain. This was as far as I made it. One day when I have lost enough weight I will be going over the top. It was about three miles from the parking lot to the place I took this picture. I spent the night and went down in the morning.

Cool to see these mountains without moving :-) Thanks. Did you find the gold mine ?

You got some great cumulus clouds there in the picture! If Bob spots them your sure to get a comment out of him!

That looks pretty formidable to climb over it, totally out of my range now! Good luck with it, always nice to have goals! Now I want to see you take a shot from the top.

"Superstition" is such a great name for a mountain. g I enjoyed this series, cool rock formations, plus I learned about the Lost Dutchman's Mine thanks to it.

What a fantastic experience this must have been, Dan! I'm jealous! :) I could only imagine how much greater life would be up there, one step closer to the clouds! Excellent view and capture!

Great capture. When I first came to Arizona in 1973 I was approaching the Superstition Mountains one day from Mesa, and I thought I would drive up there. Saw all those horizontal layers and thought they were a road. I pulled off from the Apache Trail on the way to Canyon Lake and found out really fast that this is some very tough country. The only time I have seen the top fairly close was from Hueys when flying with the Army Guard around there!

Thanks. I graduated from HS in Ohio in 1973 and wish I would have come out here then.

it is beautiful. one can stand at a vantage point and think, well that does not look too hard to ascend. after the fact one finds it is difficult
