Grand Canyon West and Skywalk

Grand Canyon WestMany years ago, I went on a Grand Canyon West airplane tour. After enjoying great views from above, the plane landed on the west rim, and we disembarked for breathtaking views of the deep canyons.

Fast forward to 2020, I decide to relive this experience with my family but was surprised with a totally different place.

Instead of the pristine Grand Canyon experience, we were herded through a large gift shop/visitor center, bus ride to rim locations, and wnt on the glass-bottom Skywalk.



Battlefield Vegas

Battlefield Vegas - WeaponsI never touched a real firearm – or even came close to one – in my life. I don't think kids' toys count.

So I was intrigued when I heard about Battlefield Vegas. Here is a chance to try my hand on shooting a gun without committing to buying anything.


California Adventures

Wherever I go, I am always on the lookout for new adventures. From the tame to the wild: skiing; 4wheeling (Off-road/ATV); surfing; Air Combat; Glider Rides; Canyoneering; just to name a few. This section will provide information about all of those activities and more.

Read about places like Oceano Dunes, Zipline Catalina, and Canyoneering San Antonio Falls.


Sedona Stargazing

This year we decided to go with professionals on a Stargazing tour. Sedona Stargazing runs an excellent tour using their huge telescopes to allow us to gaze into distant planets and stars.

Our guide was very knowledgable and seems to love talking about astronomy. He started by pointing out some constellations and then showed us a few heavenly objects with the telescope.
