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.

Are your folks living near Globe? We will be traveling through Globe making a documentary film (http://www.theamericanway-movie.us) are interested in speaking with locals? If so, do you think they would be interested in speaking with us?
