Not far from our park in Gold Canyon is Goldfield Arizona. It is touted as a ghost town, an old gold mining town. Even though it appears old, most of the buildings are reproductions as, well, time took it's toll on the original buildings. We were told there were some fires along the way that also took out hunks of the town.
Our first order of the day was lunch, the weather was rather pleasant, so, we ate on the patio of the Mammoth Steakhouse. We enjoyed the view of the Superstition Mountains, Bob and Mina's company, and the food.

green box full of GOLD they are supposed to
As in Tombstone, there is hokey history, the story of gold, with a gun fight, but of course!
|See, there is that green box of GOLD again, and see,|
there is trouble!
They seem to have the sheriff cornered in the jail house.
That is dynamite he is tossing into the jail.
After a bunch of gun shooting and fake killing and such, our little show was over. Hokey, but fun.
There is also a gold mine (additional $$), which we did not partake of. We were enjoying the abundant sunshine, warm temps, good friends, some shopping and just wandering around Goldfield. What a great day!
