Tortilla Flat on Saturday

Earlier this week I promised you pictures of Tortilla Flat, AZ (not to be confused with John Steinbeck's Tortilla Flat).  If you click on the AZ TF, you will get a brief description of this little stopping place with 6 inhabitants.  This is not the same as the ghost town I presented on Tuesday of this week.  This place actually started out in the early 1900s as a stage stop.

We drove out of Chandler on a windy Rt. 88 to find this little strip of fun.  It sits below Superstition Mountain and boasts the Superstition Restaurant and Bar.  There is a shopping area and an ice cream shop and lots of rusty old stuff laying around.  That will show up on a Tuesday with Rubbish by Roan.  Needless to say, there were lots of motorcycles parked here.  Only a couple of miles away is the Canyon Lake.

The bathrooms are very entertaining, as you can see.  The dancehall girls are depicted on each door.  But the doors were mounted a little high, so had to be on my very tippy toes to be seen. I could only dream.....

This is the front of the buildings that show the ice cream shop and the hanging guy.

This view is from the other end looking toward the restaurant along the boardwalk.

Inside the restaurant are saddles for bar stools.  Along the other side of the L-shaped bar are a series of carved horses butts with tails.

And this is my entry for Saturday Critters - a Javelina (havelina) with a severed arm in its mouth.  Ugh!  Note the dollar bills plastered all over the walls.  The sandwiches were delicious and a fun time was had by all!

Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!
