Saguaros provide the only shade.
Leave the main trail and turn right at this pile of rocks.  The cave is at the top of this picture.

Almost to the cave.
In the mouth of the cave.
A mine was dug here many years ago.
Looks like the mine may have been filled in somewhat.

I didn't notice the bird when I took this.
This part of the trail is next to a neighborhood.
Beer cans (especially this brand) are all over the desert.  Maybe they grow out there.

This is a hike from the Broadway trailhead to what is called Broadway Cave. It is in the Superstition Mountain wilderness area. Pictures are of various sights along the way. There are a few HDR images so that the mountains on the horizon show up, too.
