Arizona Snapshots - Goldfield Ghost Town

Goldfield Ghost Town is a little tourist town located outside of Apache Junction on the road to Canyon Lake, at the base of the Superstition Mountains. It's pretty much a tourist trap, but it sits on the land of a genuine gold mining town that disappeared. I dragged my little brother to it with me, because I love cheesy photo ops like this. Still, it was interesting, particularly since I grew up in an area that is filled with old mining ghost towns- only that was copper, not gold.
