The Story Behind
The Superstitions

The Superstitions…a beautiful nugget in the Valley of the Sun.  Jagged, volcanic peaks covered by saguaro and cacti soaring to a high point of 5,024 feet above the desert floor create a breathtaking formation visible from a far.

Is there something superstitious about the Superstitions?  Legend has it that a German immigrant discovered a mother lode of gold in those mountains and revealed its location in 1891 to nobody but his caretaker.  Since then many mines have been claimed but none have been verified.  So the hunt goes on to find that mother lode known as the Lost Dutchman’s Mine.

The back story…What is it about this image?  Beautiful stands of cacti adorn the mountain but on this day, the day this image was captured, it was abound with growth of the wild flower kind.  Profuse blossoms, waist deep…what a sight to see perhaps only once in a life time.
