Myths, Scary Stories, Ghosts, Folklore, Legends and Monsters in Arizona
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 phantoms in old fashioned clothes who are sometimes seen on London Bridge in Lake Havasu City; 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 plumed, venomous snakes that inhabit sacred springs, according to the Zuni people; 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; tales of the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine in the Superstitions; and the strange lights seen hovering in the Superstition Mountains, 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 sasquatch-like Mogollon Monster; the entrance to Hell in the Superstition Mountains, which emits the winds that cause dust storms in the Phoenix area; 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 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 draining energy vortices experienced around Sedona and in the Superstition Mountains; and the time shifts experienced by some hikers in the Superstitions, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Arizona.

America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Albuquerque, Detroit, Santa Fe, New Orleans, Kansas City, Chicago, San Diego, New York, Phoenix, Indianapolis, Fairbanks, Savannah, St Louis, Salt Lake City, Miami, Minneapolis, Skagway, Boston, Anchorage, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Lake Tahoe, Atlanta, Atlantic City, Sitka, Corpus Christi, Houston, Honolulu, Sacramento, Seattle, Los Angeles, Dallas, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Juneau and Fort Lauderdale are among the most famous cities in the USA. Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, rodeos, the Disney resorts, the California coastline, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Appalachians, Niagara Falls, the Florida Keys, Yosemite National Park, the Ozarks, Yellowstone National Park, Bryce Canyon, the Adirondacks, Route 66, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Mount Rainier National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Glacier Bay National Park, the Everglades, the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, the Okefenokee Swamp and Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi.
The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. We hope that you enjoy your hotel.
