    Monsters, Folklore, Legends, Myths, Scary Stories and Ghosts in Arizona

    The ninety-two foot winged, alligator like monster, killed by ranchers between the Huachuca and Whetstone ranges, in what is now Coronado National Forest, in 1890 (a sample was sent for scientific examination - what happened to it?); the entrance to Hell in the Superstition Mountains, which emits the winds that cause dust storms in the Phoenix area; the phantom guests of the Hotel San Carlos in Phoenix, including invisible happy children and the unhappy Leone Jensen, who leapt to her death in 1928; the inebriated ghost in the ballroom of the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort, said to be that of a man who fell from the cliffs; the time shifts experienced by some hikers in the Superstitions; the sasquatch-like Mogollon Monster; the bigfoot seen in the Huachuca Mountains (perhaps it was the Mogollon Monster); and tales of the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine in the Superstitions, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Arizona.

    The phantom, at Grand Canyon's Maricopa Point, of a luckless member of the Civilian Conservation Corps who fell to his death in the nineteen-thirties; the thunderbird of Apache legend that dwells in the Superstition Mountains; the plumed, venomous snakes that inhabit sacred springs, according to the Zuni people; the invisible but tactile ghost at the Park Hotel in Hot Springs; the strange lights seen hovering in the Superstition Mountains; 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 phantoms in old fashioned clothes who are sometimes seen on London Bridge in Lake Havasu City; and the draining energy vortices experienced around Sedona and in the Superstition Mountains, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Arizona.


    Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. Be as familiar with famous places as you might like to be with famous people. Fairbanks, Detroit, Juneau, Seattle, Houston, Salt Lake City, Sacramento, San Diego, Los Angeles, Sitka, Atlantic City, Anchorage, Boston, Honolulu, San Francisco, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, Skagway, Lake Tahoe, Washington DC, Savannah, Atlanta, Dallas, Indianapolis, Phoenix, Las Vegas, New York, Santa Fe, Miami, Albuquerque, St Louis, Kansas City, New Orleans, Corpus Christi, Minneapolis and Philadelphia. If you have seen those cities, you have at least seen the most famous ones in the USA. Visiting all fifty states is something that even most Americans cannot manage but it is possible to visit those cities, as well as other iconic destinations such as Mount Rushmore, the wild west town of Tombstone, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Niagara Falls, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Route 66, the Disney resorts, Mount Rainier National Park, Yellowstone National Park, rodeos, the Okefenokee Swamp, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Yosemite National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Florida Keys, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Appalachians, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Grand Canyon, the Adirondacks, Bryce Canyon, the Ozarks, the California coastline, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Glacier Bay National Park and the Everglades. Casually mentioning places that you have visited can be as impressive as mentioning the names of celebrities that you have met.
