Superstition Mountain and Desert
124 Superstition Mountain and Desert. This mighty sentinel rises abruptly from the purple haze of desert surroundings, and with its weird outlines and ghostly shadows, impresses one that it is justly named. As history goes, the early white settlers, composed largely of Mormons, were continually being attacked by the wildest and most treacherous of the Southwestern Indians, "The Apaches". After numerous raids, leaving death and destruction behind, the government sent a detachment of cavalry to subdue these renegades. The Apaches were surprised and surrounded, and sought refuge in the above mentioned mountain. It was impossible to route them from their stronghold, so they were held at bay. Facing starvation, and rather than give themselves up, the Apaches, one by one hurled themselves from the towering cliffs.
