The ghosts of the El Tovar Hotel at the Grand Canyon, including a dark figure seen outside and the friendly spirit of Fred Harvey, a former owner; the plumed, venomous snakes that inhabit sacred springs, according to the Zuni people; the strange lights seen hovering in the Superstition Mountains; the bigfoot seen in the Huachuca Mountains (perhaps it was the Mogollon Monster); the invisible but tactile ghost at the Park Hotel in Hot Springs; the draining energy vortices experienced around Sedona and in the Superstition Mountains; tales of the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine in the Superstitions; and the thunderbird of Apache legend that dwells in the Superstition Mountains, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Arizona.
