Museum, Mountains, Mining and Elvis

The Superstition Mountain Museum has several old mining buildings, mining equipment, signs that say watch out for snakes and the chapel here known as the Elvis Chapel because he once filmed a movie here.

    Awesome clouds over the church. That’s one of my fave locations to photograph the Superstitions. Love it!

  2. Lovely photo. I can see why it was in a movie. I take it you did not see any critters of the slithering type.

    “Charro” was one of my favorite films done by Elvis. It showed he could actually act – when he wasn’t making one of the Colonel’s cookie-cutter films.

    • I’ve never seen it but I will take your word for it plus I’m impressed you knew the movie; I didn’t read that part of the brochure 😉

        IMO, the best he did was ‘Flaming Star’, then ‘Charro’ and ‘Love Me Tender’ because he actually acted in them. The only cookie-cutter movies I liked were ‘G.I. Blues’ and ‘Blue Hawaii.’

    “Elvis filmed here”, “Washington slept here” Whatever it takes to catch a tourist’s eye.
