Tour locally. It’s easier.
Apache Junction is about 30 miles from Phoenix. We thought we might do something touristy in Phoenix, but after driving around it during rush hour we decided it was just too big and conjested. So we found a couple of things to do locally.
Besh Ba Gowah ruins.
We had to drive through several old mining towns to get to this site. Besh Ba Gowah means “metal camp.” It fits. All around it were huge copper mines.
My next post will show what an old copper mine can do to make money in the 21st Century.
And, of course, someone had the bright idea to make some money on this whole mining theme.
