Very Superstitious

By Linda Tancs

Located east of Phoenix, Arizona, the fabled Superstition Mountain is aptly named considering the history and folklore of the region.  Perhaps best known as the alleged site of the richest gold mine in the world, treasure hunters still descend on Apache Junction in search of the Lost Dutchman Mine.  You’ll find interesting memorabilia at nearby Superstition Mountain Museum, where exhibits include the Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine maps, gold samples from local mines and Native American artifacts.
