Established in 1922, Triangle T both the colorful and exciting past.
In 1929 it came into the hands of Catherine Tutt, the result of a breach-of-contract to marry suit. Since then, Triangle T is been the site of many historic events. During World War II it was the center of intrigue.
In 1997 after years of exhaustive research, award-winning author Jane Eppinga was finally able to confirm the rumors that high raking Japanese officials had been covertly detained at the ranch. Details of the incarceration of the World's Most Wanted war criminals are now available in the Triangle T Library.

Attended mass yesterday evening at the 'White Dove of the Desert'...did you know this is the oldest, intact European structure in Arizona?
“Painstakingly researches, the film is shot where the events happened, and features interviews with family members on both sides of the conflict, and well-spoken historians. A labor of love and triumph of creative documentary filmmaking, and holds a special fascination today, when many feel the government is intruding too deeply into peoples lives”.

I was lucky enough to had been granted a private tour of @therialtotucson earlier this afternoon. Such a majestic vibe inside this historical venue in the heart and soul of downtown Tucson. From just one step into its lobby, I can immediately feel the many years of joy created by thousands of live performers.
If you ever roll through the 520, be sure to slot in a show and contribute to its magnificence. Rock on!
Clifton Arizona. What can I say about the place that hasn’t been said already. Well not a whole lot is said about the place these days but with as awesome a history as Clifton has and being smacked right up against the natural beauty of the area, I have plenty to say. In short, I love the place, always have, despite being devoid of fine eateries and an abandoned school which breaks my heart, I still love the place, 100 year old warts and all. Here’s a few photos I snapped of the old mining town and also shot an upcoming Video that I’ll be releasing later this month. The sleepy town speaks to me, really it does and when you have rows of buildings with numbers like 1913, 1922, 1903 and so on branded on the front, well that’s a special thing that simply cannot be recreated. If you ever find yourself in the southeastern part of Arizona, time to do some exploring. #cliftonaz#arizona#mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness#mentalillness#depressionhelp#depression#depressiondecoded#anxiety#anxietyfree#azhistory#arizonahistory

I was only recently introduced to Katie Lee and her deep connection to Glen Canyon before it was dammed. I have become obsessed with her fire, her sass, and her ironclad passion for fighting for a place where she found herself deeply rooted and spoke to her in a way no other place did. I had the opportunity to write a piece about Katie after she passed away on Wednesday and the inspiration and drive she has sparked in me is beyond words. The link is in my bio.
"You just have to find your own way. You have find out who you are - of course, I don't think you can do that in the middle of a clashing city." - Katie Lee (1919-2017)
Once Arizona’s largest ghost town, now a town bustling with history, art, views and great stories, Jerome is a town worth the uphill trek. Not to mention, being that the town is built on Cleopatra Hill (the largest copper mine in AZ), lots of calf muscle is involved in scaling these streets; but it was totally worth it. The kids thought it was a pretty unique place; especially the ghostly tale at the Haunted Hamburger (watch out for your hammers 🔨!). Stopping at the candy store before we left, and spending way too much dinero on candy, was a nice end to our day exploring Tuzigoot and Jerome.
