The Superstition Mountains, popularly called "The Superstitions", are a range of mountains in Arizona located to the east of the Phoenix metropolitan area. They are anchored by Superstition Mountain, a large mountain that is a popular recreation destination for residents of the Phoenix, Arizona area.
As with most of the terrain surrounding the Phoenix metropolitan area, the Superstition Mountains have a desert climate, with high summer temperatures and a handful of perennial sources of water.
Some Apaches believe that the hole leading down into the lower world is located in the Superstition Mountains. Winds blowing from the hole are supposed to be the cause of severe dust storms.

Magnificent rocks on the unique eart formation shown.
Excelent clarity, light and depth collected.
Beeing superstitious on the desert, is not a good idea - one must be alert and with all senses stimulanted - to grasp the beauty and to be careful from all sort of dangers out there.
Beautiful and impressive taken shot.

Great shot of these very monumental mountains, and what a cool name too. Looks like true Road Runner country here. If thats the case, no wonder they are claled superstition mountains, there is always a good chance there is a coyote about to drop an anvil on your head!
Thanks for sharing

Only one word "Apache" brings me back to my childhood. Oh how I loved the western movies and books! And this photo looks like a scanned photo from pre-digital times. Attractive view, but I'd like to add the American indeans or cowboys for effect. ;)
