October 2022 Contest
This cemetery is at the site of one of the richest mines in Arizona’s history — by some estimates, as much as $200 million in gold and silver was mined there. Today, an extensive restoration has made the nearby ghost town, named for a bird found throughout Arizona, a tourist attraction.

Congratulations to our winner, Yvonne Zanzucci of Delray Beach, Florida.
There are plenty of old mines in Arizona, but this one in the western part of the state is something special. It’s now open for guided tours that take visitors 100 feet underground, and the highlight is a wall of minerals that glow red, blue and green under ultraviolet light. We’re looking for the name of the surrounding ghost town, which is named for a nearby peak.
