Grand Staircase – Escalante National Monument is truly a hidden gem that isn’t really hidden at all. In fact, this entire area takes up a whopping 1,003,863 acres. Before Trump reduced it in late 2017 the national monument encompassed 1,880,461 acres. This entire area is immensely large and beyond beautiful. It is filled with [...]

Devil’s Garden – The Devil Would Be So Lucky

Devil’s Garden seems inaccurately named if you ask me.  When I think of the devil I think of fire, a dark, and ugly hell.  A place no one in their right mind wants to visit.  Devil’s Garden is the opposite of that concept.  In fact, it is so far from that concept that there [...]

Liquid Hot Magma – Sunset Crater Volcano

A volcano in Arizona is not something you would ever think of but believe it or not, Sunset Crater Volcano is actually located in Northern Arizona.  Yes, it was an actual volcano that erupted sometime between 1040 and 1100 AD.  I know it’s kind of hard to believe, I actually didn’t know what to [...]

Wupa..What? Wupatki

By |2019-01-25T12:37:24-07:00February 24th, 2018|Arizona, Attractions, Experiences, National Monument|

The Wupatki National Monument is another one of those “stare in complete awe” dwellings.  You can’t help but lose yourself in the natural curiosity of “How in the world did these people do this?”.  The truth is the Puebloan people came together in the 1100’s to build Wupatki, which means “Tall House” in the [...]

Montezuma Castle seems to be one of those attractions that no matter when you go, there will be a line.  I am here to tell you it is worth that wait.  Pictures really do this monument no justice.  Yes, there are some great photos out there, but there is nothing like being up close [...]
