Make plans for a Sunday Drive in your Porsche on a route that features sites representative of Arizona’s important copper mining industry. We’ll head out from the East Valley on US-60 and turn south in Superior, home of the Resolution Copper Company. We will stop at the Ray Mine overlook to view the mining operations and hear an informative and interesting geology and mining description presented by AZPCA club member and mining engineer Jim Mackay.
Next, our drive will take us back toward Superior then on to Globe along the scenic and twisty stretch of US-60 that follows Queen Creek through Devil’s Canyon.
After lunch in Globe you will have a couple options for your return to the Valley. Some of us will follow Highway 188 past Tonto National Monument, crossing under the elegant arch of the bridge at Theodore Roosevelt Dam, then continuing on the scenic drive along Roosevelt lake to the Beeline Highway and back to the Valley. Or you can re-trace the winding route back through Superior to Gold Canyon and the East Valley.

It should be a great day for a January drive in Arizona, while most of the Porsches around the country are sitting in garages waiting for spring. Aren’t we lucky to be living in the Sonoran Desert?
