Before volunteering for Thanksgiving I'm playing tourist at a local cemetery that has a 1906 horse drawn funeral hearse. Unfortunately because of the position of the sun I can't get a good side picture. I'm going to wait half an hour and see if I can get a good side picture because it is actually a pretty interesting looking.

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.

The #westernunion #telegraph office in the #wellsfargohistorymuseum was filled with vintage equipment from that day, inclusive of old #notarystamps, an antique #checkwriting machine; even the telegraphing device used to transmit the #morsecode signals. And the space had a very legitimate feel as I browsed. #americana #wildwest #americanhistory #southwest #oldtech #arizonahistory

Attended mass yesterday evening at the 'White Dove of the Desert'...did you know this is the oldest, intact European structure in Arizona?

This is the remains of the Longhorn Grill, unfortunately closed. I love roadside oddities and all of AZ's random history.

Took a late afternoon hike out in the Superstitions and had my afternoon snack underneath these incredibly preserved Hohokam petroglyphs (c. 300-1500 c.e.) ✨

“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”.

Trail ready.  A behind the scenes look at our trail crew right before the last trip into #powersgarden in late October.  It is a beautiful time of year to #getoutside and enjoy the beauty that is the great state of #arizona!  We made special efforts to capture and preserve the beauty of Southeast Arizona in our film @powerswar, available on iTunes, Amazon, Vimeo, and Blu-ray today.

Cochise County was created by a vote of the citizens in 1881 with Tombstone serving as its county seat. The courthouse was constructed in 1882. The courthouse continued to serve as a county facility until 1931 when the county seat was moved to Bisbee.

Collapsed corral in Alamo Wash, Organ Pipe National Monument, Arizona. We took a morning stroll from a small campground and found this historic mining site. Organ Pipe is worth the drive to check out the namesake cacti plus 27 other species. It shares a border with Mexico. The park is also a Biosphere Reserve for the purpose of preserving a Sonoran Desert ecosystem.

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!

Old mining cabin (I think). Very cool to see an authentic part of history on this particular hike.

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

This is one of my favorite little stops to take some pics and hike around at. #houserockvalley Cool little history here... in the 1920's, a dancer named Blanche Russell left her career to care for her  husband who was sick. While they traveled northwest from Navajo Bridge to Marble Canyon, Arizona, their car broke down. Blanche made a shelter against the largest rock and spent the night. She loved the area so much that she and her husband bought the spot of land... More details #ontheblog shortly and more pictures too! #Rockhouses #marblecanyon #blancherussell #navajobridge #staciesroadtrip2017 #arizonahistory #exploretheusa #arizonastories #lularoerandy #rockyview #outhouse #balancedrocks

Exploring some ghost towns over the weekend, this was the first place on the tour. 
After its opening in 1882, Rath who built the town and the Cochise Hotel served many purposes for the local community. These purposes included serving as the Wells Fargo office, the telegraph office, the community laundry and the local post office beginning in 1896. In 1899, Big Nose Kate, the famed sidekick of Doc Holliday, was hired to work in the hotel after Holliday's death.

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.

Thank you @caparizona for the fantastic tour yesterday! Our partners at Arizona State University’s Decision Center for a Desert City and School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies joined us too! We learned about the history of Central Arizona Project and how they deliver water to many communities in our state. @azhumanities and @arizonastateuniversity are preparing for the Smithsonian’s #WaterWaysAZ exhibit, which will tour 12 Arizona rural communities from June 2018 - March 2020. More info at: http://azhumanities.org/water-ways/ - Stay tuned!

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.

Today was absolutely breathtaking. I was really humbled at the beauty that this ancient Native American architecture had laid before me. It had such incredible history of how innovative and years ahead they were with everything that they constructed,engineered and implemented in their agricultural techniques...i was and still am so moved by their story, their history, their strength that still live on today! Seeing monuments and historical landmarks like these remind me how small i am in this history of this world but that this world has history nonetheless and its your moral and human responsibility to explore, discover, learn, respect and protect it all!! 🏜🙏🏼☀️😌🦅🐺🦂🦎🌵🍂🏹⛰💛

Kicking off the last few days of October with views of crystal blue skies in sunny #SouthernArizona. 😎🙌🏼🌤 This Fall, travel to Santa Cruz County, Arizona to visit Tumacacori National Historical Park to explore the grounds of the O’odham, Yaqui and Apache tribes where they mingled European Jesuit and Franciscan missionaries. #VisitArizona #VisitSouthernAZ #TravelArizona #ExploreArizona #ArizonaHistory #AZStateParks #WeekendTravel #WeekendAdventures
This shows the people inside the walls of the #presidiosanatacruzdeterrenate and for good reason. The “incessive” (as teodoro croix stated) #apache attacks on the #soldadodecuera of this #pimeriaalta outpost made life too dangerous outside the walls. They attacked the people so they could not cultivate crops, they attacked packtrains trying to deliver “effects and supplies”, they looted the livestock and rendered the soldados unable to defend themselves and “useless to defend the province” for these reasons this #presidio was abandoned only 5 yrs after its opening.

As we hiked along the trail, my heart pounded as we approached the #ruins in the distance. This #presidiosantacruzdeterrenate was ill fated from the start. Within 8 mos of assuming command, the #commandante Capt. Francisco Tovar and 25 #soldadodecuera were dead from an #apache #ambush while on patrol.  My #ancestor was amoung the 25 leaving a grieving #widow and their two small children. #arizonahistory #spanishcolonial #pimeriaalta #santacruz #genealogyresearch #genealogy #nationalhistoricsite

For those who remember, I attempted to hike to the Presidio Santa Cruz in southern #arizona  but abborted due to an injury. Well, im still waiting on a MRI but doctors have their schedule, I got my little bottle of #tylenal and my own schedule.  So I recently found that an ancestor had served here at this #presidiosantacruzdeterrenate under the command of Capt. Francsico Tovar. He was also one of the 25 #soldados #muertoenbatalla #killedinaction with #apaches.  This time we made the hike to the presidio ruins.  Life at this presidio was hell for these soldados and their families. The apache had arrived in the area not long before the spanish flag. The apache was a fierce warrior who could launch 8-10 arrows per ONE musket round of the soldado.
