Mum and Dad are totally obsessed with this admittedly awesome Mexican restaurant a short drive away in Globe (Arizona). And if you go to visit them, they will make you go there.
The drive to Globe include some interesting geological features. Warning: the horizon line in the top photo is not level.
These photos were brought to you by a pull-off along the highway.
The typical Globe excursion involve the Mexican restaurant, a stop at a store called 'The Pickle Barrel,' and a visit to the pueblo ruins at the archaeological site Besh-Ba-Gowah.
Some reassembly has been done to a few structures, which is fun, because then I can peer out the second-story pueblo window.
The whole Besh-Ba-Gowah complex has an extensive bit of the pueblo for self-guided tours as well as a little, super-cute museum housing all the archaeological finds and a spectacularly done educational video. Globe itself is a copper mining town, and from all appearances has been down on its luck for a long time. Which, to me, makes the community-run and -sponsored Besh-Ba-Gowah more impressive.
