Apache Junction/Gold Canyon Independent
November 3, 2010
The Apache Junction Police Department hosted a moonlight hike in the Superstition Mountains Oct. 23. The hike was held for FBI employees out of the Phoenix field office. Apache Junction Police Chief Jerald Monahan said, “We are so very fortunate to have the Superstition Mountains right in our backyard, we wanted to show them off to some of our federal partners and let them see why it is so exciting to live, work and play in the Apache Junction/Gold Canyon area.” Superstition Search and Rescue commander Robert Cooper coordinated the event and led the hike along with other SSAR members. SSAR is a nonprofit rescue team dedicated to assisting individuals or groups who experience wilderness-related issues.
