Goldfield Things to Do
A nice place to cool off and enjoy a few...
There are lots of rusty rustic cars and heave steel mining equipment to look at. There are street shows with cowboys and outlaws. Lots of neat little shops, hot sauces, I actually bought some and used it in the restaraunt. we ate outside on the patio it was so nice. A very romantic setting, we almost spent the night. There is lots of great hiking in the area. We went off Tomohawk Road. then we cruised over to tortilla flat, and stopped before proceeding on to the Apache trail, or Fish Tail hill if you prefer. It is a beautiful day trip, if you want a full day of rustic AZ scenery.
Horseback Riding at the Livery
If you want to go horseback riding in wonderful Arizona, the ghost town has a livery stable that you can call at (480) 982-0133, and ask about their hourly rides. Arizona and it's scenery as you may well know is perfect for horseback riding and these stable cater from the novice to experienced, singles to large groups and many families with children six years old and up.
The twins will turn six in 2010, so expect us to be taking advantage of this wonderful horseback riding! For now, they just passed the livery, but they will be regulars.Related to:

Church on the Mount
At the very end of main road, you will come across the Church on the Mount. It is a new vintage building, but it still has an organ from the 1800’s and a pulpit that used to be in the famous Hammond Theatre.
There is a nice sandy road clearing in front of it which is really good for photo sessions – naturally, we took our signature jumping pictures, hehehe. We visited on a Saturday and there was nothing going in it. But during Sundays, there are services (by Rev Tim Jones according to the website) and weddings at the Church. The pews were actually built later in 1931 and the chandeliers from old wagon wheels.Related to:
