visiting MIAMI, Arizona!

I decided to ride up to Miami a couple of days back, as they have (HAD!) a pretty neat street of shops selling antiques - more about that in a bit.

Heading N towards Superior, the light was pretty nice on "Picketpost Mountain", so I stopped for a pic....



When I pulled off the Main street (AZ 60 thru town), then N to the 'Antiques Street' I was surprised to see very little happening - MOST of them 'shuttered, NONE open at that time.

I saw what appears to be a very old home



then back E to where it used to be "happening"...





It was a bit of a "bummer', but I continued to the street's end - still nothing happening, then a block to the S, back to AZ 60, and turned E towards Globe. A few blocks up, an old gas station caught my eye, so I turned IN, parked BIG RED, grabbed my camera and took a few pics.

There was LOTS of old stuff to take pics of, so follow me along:





an old cab-over (?) at the back,



as well as a Model A truck at the far E end of the lot.



Two cars are parked behind a fence by the pumps, but OVER their tops you can see



There's a 'wash' at the W end of town, called the Bloody Tanks Wash (LIKE to know THAT story!), so the station's named after the same thing!

MORE pics of the Model A truck....







W/ an aluminum travel-trailer behind it.



I took another pic of BIG RED



then decided to turn back W, riding home via Superior, thru miles of big rocks.



Got home after a 105 mile ride that took 2.5 hours total. NICE way to spend an afternoon...!

Thanks for sharing, fasteddie! I love seeing these "out of the way" places. You can only imagine the stories behind all those things you saw!
