Desert Day Trip - Superior to Miami

When I lived in Wisconsin a day trip including Superior and Miami would have involved an airplane and two very different states.  In Arizona it is about a 17 mile drive.

 Right after the tunnel (built in 1952) we pulled over to take some pictures of the little canyon - Queen Creek Canyon?

On the way into Miami there are huge slag piles that boggle the mind.  No pull offs really along the road, so I drove slow leaving the town and Scott took some pictures. 
 The town itself looks pretty depressed. I thought copper was coming back.
Superior did look a little better for a small town - we stopped at the DQ there on the way back.
