Superstition Mountains, East of Phoenix, Arizona USA
Arizona
Marking the east edge of the Salt River Valley, the Superstition Mountains are a highly visible landmark. The name of the mountains comes from the stories of Indian gold and lost mines associated with the range. The Salt River Valley is home to Phoenix, Mesa, Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale, Peoria, Surprise, Goodyear, and many other large and small communities. Phoenix is the sixth largest city in the United States by population. The highest point of the mountain range is not visible from the valley, but the peaks with their impressive cliffs are over 4000 feet high. The area around the mountains is a designated wilderness and all vehicular traffic is excluded. Temperatures in the summer months climb to well over 115 degrees Fahrenheit. There are a number of trails for hiking and horse back riding in the Wilderness and despite its proximity to a large metropolitan area, it is a rugged and difficult place to visit.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
