Superstition Mountain

Superstition Mountain



 Superstition Mountain

A macabre church-turned-museum, a mountain jutting against Arizona skies, a ghost town, tumbleweeds and cacti, and a legend create the perfect place for a story told through compelling images — a story you can create as part of this class.

Rumored to be the site of Jacob Waltz’s Lost Dutchman Gold Mine, this eerie landscape is the perfect place to capture a haunting, dreamlike image with your viewfinder!

This class actually includes several venues. Activities nearby include (in order of location west to east along the Apache Trail): Superstition Mountain Museum (admission $5), Lost Dutchman State Park (admission $7/carload), and Goldfield Ghost Town You will be responsible for any and all admission costs.


Your instructor will teach you how to create compelling images using a series of tips and techniques she uses everyday as an accomplished photographer.

The haunted and forbidden-looking landscape, the mountains looming above desert plants and eroded-looking buildings, and your instructor will work together to encourage you and help you to formulate incredible, powerful images.
