Wealthy Wednesday = Treasure!

T

I wish I could say I found some treasure over the long weekend – believe me when I say I could REALLY. USE. IT!!!  Unfortunately for me, the trail I hiked at the Lost Dutchman State Park did not net me any gold.  😦

The Lost Dutchman State Park is located at the base of the Superstition Mountains in Apache Junction, Arizona.  You might recognize the middle picture from old Western movies – the Superstitions were featured in a LOT of them back in the 1940s and 50s! Treasure Loop trail is a 2.4 mile hike, and described as a moderate trail.  The elevation changed 500 feet from the base of the trail to the top, and while neither my son nor I had problems with the change in elevation, my 73 year old mother did.  She got about half way, then decided to head back down.  Fortunately there are several places on this trail where benches are placed for hikers to sit and either rest, or admire the views.  🙂

An interesting tidbit…the entire far east valley of the sun is actually a floodplain (which you can from the pictures after having reached the summit and coming back down).  This is the Sonoran Desert – floods are very few and far between!  However, should the time come when the rains come “tumbling down” a whole lot of people are going to be in for an unpleasant surprise!  I love the desert, but even the desert is no match for water.

Happy trails to you!  😉

    I could surely do with finding treasure or winning the lottery.
