About 30 miles east of where we live, along US 60, lies the little mining town of Superior, Arizona. It\’s a relatively unremarkable place, but just a few miles past it US 60 winds its way into a gorge dug eons ago by Queen Creek, which eventually winds its way into the Valley and gives its name to a smaller housing development that is one of the dozens of Phoenix suburbs.

I dropped by this morning and took these pictures. You can get more detail (and see a few more shots) at my blog.

    Looks like it’s a bit of hike to get there. Send me a /tell when you get the VR of it, I’d love to sit on my couch and experience that!

    It’s right off the highway, no hike to see it. I like Devil’s Canyon better, though – in the same area, looks pretty cool at sunset because the granite + sun makes everything pinkish orange.
