In Wenden, Arizona, we stopped at the Outback Saloon, said to have been built in the early 1920s as the first poured-concrete building in Arizona. Supposedly it was also the nearest telegraph station to the historic Harquahala Smithsonian Observatory south of Salome. We had a Corona, told the bar owner where we were going, and asked him to tell anyone who came asking that we were headed northwest on dirt.
