The Superstition Mountain Museum
, complete with historic structures both real and not (the church and barn were movie props), may sound a little cheesy. However, there are cacti and – if you look for the right angles – you can pretend that you have stumbled through a gap in the space/time continuum and have landed in an idealized version of the old west.
That gigantic structure in the background is one of the authentic things relocated to this spot, a piece of mining equipment that was laboriously moved here in order to preserve it.
It’s a bit of industrial art as much as it is a machine.
And it is somehow fitting in this wild and sculptural landscape.
