Walk in nature, learn the legends of this natural wonder and visit the historic Apache Museum


The city of Phoenix is located in the Sonoran Desert. Home to the Saguaro cactus, the Sonoran boasts the most diverse flora and fauna of the four North American deserts.

This full day adventure allows us to venture well outside of the city to the Superstition Mountains to the east of the city. Described by President Teddy Roosevelt as "the Alps of the Sonoran" these mountains have attracted treasure hunters for decades looking for the Lost Dutchman's gold mine.

While we might not find the gold mine, we will learn about the history of the area at the Apache Museum, visit the Goldfield mining town, drive by Canyon Lake, enjoy a southwestern style lunch at Tortilla Flat and discover other hidden gems in the area as well as majestic pristine wilderness that will leave you stunned by it's rugged beauty.
