Globe for Christmas, 2016!
Globe, AZ. Today, the population hovers around 7,400, giving the town a small town charm within easy reach of Phoenix (90 miles East), and about the same distance North of Tucson.
From Wikipedia - "The city was incorporated twice prior to its present incorporation in 1907. It has been said Globe named from a globe shaped piece of pure silver found nearby. Globe and Miami, which have been important copper mining centers for more than a century, are colorful communities about four miles apart in east-central Arizona. Both are located in the Cobre Valley, at about 3,500 feet, at the foot of the Pinal Mountains in Southern Gila County.
The Salado Indian Ruins at Besh-Ba-Gowah is a unique glimpse into our native history. In the ruins you will find interpretive signs to better understand the Salado civilization. The Ethno-Botanical Garden illustrates native Arizona plants that were used in there daily lives. The Museum is said to house the largest collection of Salado pottery & artifacts in the world."
Side note - the 2016 hacking of the DNC began when a stolen username and password of a single election official in Gila County opened the party's computers to misuse!
Enjoy the Christmas morning image, looking Southwest towards Globe and the foothills of the Superstition Mountains.
