I had never been to Peridot Mine although I've lived in San Carlos Apache Nation my whole life. I've always heard how beautiful it is and finally it got the best of me. It was a slow Saturday with no plans so my boys, my husband, and I drove up the infamous "orange" mountain. Boy, was it beautiful. The poppies were bright orange as you look in all directions. You realize there must be a God because only He would put such a beautiful place on earth and know His children will appreciate it. The colors were beautiful with orange at your feet and purple in the distant mountains. You could only walk so gently because you don't want to ruin the beauty of the mountain. I strongly recommend anyone passing by to stop at this Peridot mine and see how beautiful our Mother Earth can be.
