The Superstition Mountains
While I was in the Apache Junction area I decided to see if I could find the Mining Camp restaurant a place I've been to a few times but, not in a very long time. I was happy see it's still there; closed for the summer season but preparing to open in few weeks. It's located close to the end of this road and very close to the base of the Superstition Mountains. Those mountains are widely known for the old stories about the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine never found to this day. The Mining Camp restaurant is one of those theme places where you dine in a huge mess hall just the way the old time miner's would, on tin plates and with tin cups. There is always lots of bar-b-que and baked beans and corn bread. It's one of those places where the food isn't memorable but the atmosphere is. It sure sits in a great setting perched right below those spectacular mountains.
I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.
