Looks like a fun place to visit. I don't remember if I ever went there when I lived in Mesa. I remember going to a wild west town that had a stage coach ride and chickens that played the piano.

Saddles have sure come a long way.

Sad to say-but even though that museum is only a few miles from my house-I've never been inside! Whenever I think of it, is usually during the winter months. Way too many snowbirds here then. lol Have you been to the Goldfield Ghost Town yet? It's just a little ways up the highway from the museum.

Awesome! I love museums like that!

My husband's grandmother has a few saddles similar to the ones you posted pictures of...Next visit I'm gonna dig them out of the tack room!

And after going to the Goldfields, you might wanna head on up the trail a bit further to Mining Camp Restaurant....

Although they are closed from May thru October, but if you go for diner- the sunset that greets you on your way out is always gorgeous.

I was looking at the pictures and wondering "Where the heck is that?" until I seen Apacheland. I grew up here and no, I have not been there either. How sad is that?

What a cool place! You guys should go check out Rawhide in Chandler. My family lived in Mesa for a while and I remember going there every now and then. It was always a fun place to visit.

Hahaha! Stacey, there used to be a Rawhide in Chandler, while there was still "this" Rawhide in Scottsdale.

Rawhide Stockyards used to have bull riding 3 nights a week and an auction on the weekends. Nothing like the Scottsdale edition.
