We had some friends from out of town visiting, and wanted to see the Apache Trail. We didn't realize this ghost town was on the way! On our way back to Scottsdale, we stopped by to see what it was all about. Fun! It is a legitimate ghost town with gold mine tours and everything!

A grizzled-looking prospector type gave the tour into the mine for our small group of adults and kids. Though we were impressed right away by the... More »
If you think Sheriff Joe has an itchy trigger finger take on due process, try running sideways with the law here in Goldfield.For a mere $10, a friend or family member can have you arrested, jailed, tried and hanged within five minutes by a couple of Old West sheriffs in full regalia and full of (feigned) firewater. It's all in fun, but rest assured, even in jest, there is nothing so humiliating and unnerving as being hunted down like a rabid dog and run through a kangaroo court to the... More »
