Gold Canyon Community Connection

At the center of  the Community Connection 
and the center of our lives -- is the sun. Even more than the beauty and majesty of the Superstition Mountains, the sun defines our days.  Ever changing, dominating, it warms our bodies and nourishes our souls. Surrounding the sun and getting their energy from it are happy people -- joyful, energetic, helpful, 
seekers of light.
