Heading out of the valley for the weekend and decided to break-up the drive by stopping in Superior to check out the Pinal townsite. Parked alongside the airport road and followed trail markers. The route is almost entirely road walking, though there are several sections I would hesitate to drive. Queen Creek was running lightly through the cottonwood wash, which my dog appreciated. As for the townsite itself, there's not a ton to see. By far the highlight of the walk is the wagon tracks worn into the rocks north of the townsite. For those following the LOST Desert Segment informational brochure, this is the point I turned back to the car.

Hiked the Legends of Superior Trail into the ghost town of Pinal to explore the area. Roamed the town for awhile, examining ancient foundations mentioned in my LOST brochure. Checked out the Silver King Mill site and the gently flowing waters of Queen Creek before hiking south on the main road to the site of the old Apache Tear mine. Tears are very scarce up there now. The mine site was crawling with big spiders whose reflective eyes were sparkling in the light of my headlamp in the darkness. Hiked back through the ghost town to my truck, dropped the tailgate, and cooked dinner on my backpacking stove while swatting away gnats and moths. A fun and unique adventure.
