Apache Junction, AZ High 84 Low 54
I meant to tell you, if you decide to visit Casa Grande Ruins National Monument with your rig, there is RV parking. They honor your America the Beautiful Pass (or whatever that thing is called for us old folks). Sorry Toni. I wish there was some way Canadians could visit these sites without the high cost. The tours are free or you can wander the complex on your own.
After leaving the monument we headed through Florence which is home to Arizona State Prison and the Prison Outlet store. We didn’t stop this time but you can visit Florence in my blog post from 2009: http://wherearethedixonstoday.blogspot.com/2009/04/florence-az.html.
When we reached the intersection with US 60 we turned east towards Superior, home of the World’s Smallest Museum.
The roof is made of beer cans. All the major brands seemed to be well represented.
It would probably take all of five minutes to go through it and when we go back to Superior we’ll try again.
And the reason we’ll be back in Superior? Porter’s Cafe.
Thanks to Deb from http://kyleskastle.blogspot.com she mentioned in her blog about the wonderful hamburgers they had here. That sounded like the perfect place for us to have lunch.
Inside Porter’s Cafe
Superior is a small town of about 3200 people. A few movies have been filed here, i.e., Clint Eastwood in The Gauntlet and also How the West Was Won. The largest employer appears to be Resolution Copper.
For such a small town, Porter’s Cafe has some of the best food we’ve had in a long time. We both had their hamburgers. Jim had a side salad and I had their homemade fries. The guy at the table next to us had their burrito special and said it was better than it looked and it looked fabulous. Thanks Deb.
Another place we haven’t visited yet is Boyce Thompson Arboretum which is just about two miles west of Superior. Two good reasons to return to Superior.
