Wickenburg, Arizona

Around the town of Wickenburg, AZ, named for Henry Wickenburg, who discovered gold in 1863 in the area that was called the Vulture Mine.
Wickenburg is considered the Dude Ranch Capital of Arizona. There is still open range in this part of Arizona & the town still has a feel of the old west.
Gate House at the famous Vulture Mine. The gold mine was shut down long ago, but a self guided tour is open to the public.
