Yesterday Michelle and I went to Goodyear to check on Cliff's aunt and uncle's house. Every time we drive out there, we pass this tower and never knew what it was about, so on the way back, we stopped there to check it out.
As one of the plaques below tells (click on the pictures to see a larger view), The Star Tower is a living memorial to the many Native American cultures that have studied the sky from this very location.
Below is a blooming cactus we saw on our way up to the tower and a small waterfall. There is also a small picnic area, that we are planing to use on one of our other trips up there - maybe as soon as next weekend.
