Last month I traveled to a part of Arizona that I had never stopped in before, the Town of Bagdad.

The town of Bagdad is located in the high deserts of central Arizona approximately 100 miles northwest of Phoenix / 60 miles west of Prescott. The town has had a direct relationship to local mining operations which have been ongoing since 1882 when the first claims were staked...per http://bagdadaztown.com/

Jeffrey,

Once again, I learned something new about AZ.  I had no idea that there were copper mines there.  I have been to Baghdad, Iraq, when I was a child.  Thanks for adding to my knowledge. A
