Goldfield Ghost Town and Organ Stop Pizza

Big day today.  This morning we went for a walk around the resort, looked in Open House homes and checked out the new bocce ball courts, pickle ball courts, and horseshoe courts.

 After lunch we drove out to visit the ghost town of Goldfield, Arizona, an old gold mining town from 1893.   There were some gift shops, restaurants, and a gunfight reenactment. If we had stayed longer we could have gone on a trail ride, or a wagon ride, or a train tour of the area.

 After Goldfield we drove out to the Lost Dutchman State Park at the base of Superstition Mountain, hiked around a little before heading back towards home.  On the way back we stopped at an antique shop on the side of the road.

Supper was at Organ Stop Pizza in Mesa.  What a great experience that was.  A very entertaining performance.  This organ has nearly 6,000 pipes and is the largest Wurlitzer in the world.
The pizza was ok.

 Then back to the resort.  It was dark by the time we got there and many of the Christmas lights were still on.
