Take a Helicopter Ride Into the Grand Canyon

After having traveled to Las Vegas a half a dozen times in the past couple years, on this current trip I was looking for something more than sparkling lights, feathered girls and dancing water fountains. Plus, it was my birthday, which absolutely warranted a unique adventure. And that was exactly what I found. The complete bonus was that the […]

9 Things I Learned at Phoenix Comicon Convention

Let me start with admitting that I know close to nothing about comic books, zombies or science fiction. I really couldn't tell you the difference between Star Trek and Star Wars, and the last comic book I read was Archie in 1982. "Then why would you go to Comicon, a comic book convention?" you inquire. "Hello. I'm Annette, the […]

Hunt for a Rock Star in Jerome, Arizona

After hitting up Sedona, the first stop on my solo Northern Arizona road trip, I drove the winding 28 miles to the tippy top of Cleopatra Hill to the quaint town of Jerome, Arizona. Truth be told, even though its charm attracts thousands of tourists, I was there for only one reason, to track down a rock star. […]

Get Closer to Heaven at the Sedona Chapel of the Holy Cross

I have never been an overly religious person. The last time I attended a joyous service was the day I got married, fourteen years ago. With that said, I do consider myself spiritual. And something spiritual happened at the well-known Sedona Chapel of the Holy Cross (Church in the Rock) in Arizona. Something that made me feel a little closer to heaven. […]

Eat Dinner Alone at a Restaurant

Eating alone doesn't really scare me…when done prior to noon. In the AM, you can always find me hiding in the corner of some coffee shop with a double cappuccino, blueberry scone and my nose embedded in my laptop. But, when it comes to an evening meal after 5, I usually plop myself at the safety of a bar to enjoy my […]

Hunt for Ghosts in a Town in Goldfield, Arizona

I don't believe in ghosts, the boogeyman maybe, but definitely not the ghostly "Casper" variety that resembles a simple white sheet with two cut-out eyes. But, just in case they were not the fictional characters in my head, I went to hunt ghosts at Goldfield Ghost Town in Arizona. In the 1890s Goldfield was a bustling town with […]
