If you are visiting the Phoenix area or are even a local and haven’t checked out the Camelback Mountain hike yet, then it is finally time. Well, that is for the more active individuals who think they can do a moderately hard hike. Considered as a “must-do” for anyone who wants to see the view of the Phoenix valley. Not only that, but you will get the chance to experience Earth’s driest biome and see some of the flora that calls this desert landscape, home.
The Goldfield Ghost Town near Superstition Mountains in Arizona gives you a look and feel on what an old gold mining town was like in the 1890’s. From a mine tour to wathcing a gunfight in the middle of town, this is one of the places that shows a bit of the history that made up Arizona in the Wild West days.
A part of the past can be viewed when visiting the Petrified National Forest in the northeast portion of Arizona. Stepping into this “forest” is an experience you won’t have anywhere else. Don’t expect to see standing living trees. Rather you will encounter fossilized trees that were alive over 200 million years ago, but now are rock like.
