Globe/Stafford/Lordsberg-High Mesa

Globe resembles some of the scenes from mining town in the movie -Deer Hunter. Small older homes in need of paint perched on narrow ravines along the main commercial blvd with boarded up stores and empty lots with weeds and debris. Riding east we entered San Carlos Apache Reservation with a modern. Casino and golf course. We rode 50 miles through the reservation of mesquite, cactus, hills, and little water. As soon as we left the reservation the land got flatter and was soon fertile, irrigated farm land. The Apaches got poor land while the settlers took the best land , water, and ore sites. Stanford is doing well with farming and Cooper mines are expanding with new jobs.. Mild weather during a long ride over hills to Lordsburg. Small town as seen in photo of closed cafe.
