Apache Junction, Superstition Museum

After the hike, we stopped by the Superstition Mountain Museum.  Most of the museum is an old movie set that was used in the making of many western films including one Elvis starred in, Charro.  There is an Elvis chapel there as you can see, where, if you want, you can be married.

Elvis has obviously not left the building!

Steve McQueen's handprints....one of my faves

Lots of well known old cowboy/girl stars foot and hand prints...fun to see

old ore cars
