Superstition Mountains

This is a view of the Superstition Mountains, situated east of Phoenix, Arizona. The region was a hot spot for gold prospecting in the 1800s. The name of the mountain range is derived from the many tales of gold mines found and lost, particularly by the "Dutchman", Jacob Waltz in the 1800s. The region in the foreground is named "Massacre Grounds" after Mexican gold hunters were attacked and killed by Apaches in 1864.
