If you find yourself in south-central Arizona (north of Tucson, east of Phoenix), you'll discover some interesting places. Among the ones we enjoyed were Besh-Ba-Gowah Archaeological Park, a 14th-century Salado Indian ruin that has been partially reconstructed; it's in the town of Globe. Further west on Highway 60, near Superior, is Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park. Built by a mining magnate who felt bad about the destruction he was heaping on the surrounding land, it's a wonderful display of plants that grow in arid areas around the world.
