Superstition Mountain, Phoenix, Arizona.

The Majestic Superstition Mountain

Superstition Mountain is a huge mountain located on the Northeastern side of Phoenix. It’s grand and majestic, especially if you see it from afar. As clouds hover above it, I’m not sure if it’s black or brown or something reddish. As soon as you’re out of the Highway 88, you’ll be heading towards Superstition Mountain […]

Murals in Flagstaff

Flagstaff is along America’s famous road trip route, the Route 66. If you’ve seen the animated movie Cars, then, you’re familiar with this route. In fact, Route 66 is the main road that divides Flagstaff’s North and South area. Though Flagstaff nowadays is not anymore your regular road trip stop, I’d still recommend you to […]

This is the Mohave Point Overlook View of Grand Canyon South Rim.

Views of Overlook Points of Grand Canyon South Rim

Grand Canyon South Rim has overlook points that are accessible by bus. The Red and Orange bus lines stop right in front of each designated overlook points. However, when the crowd is too thick, I’d recommend you to walk a bit further away from the main spot by following the trail on your right or left. […]

These Giant Cactuses Dwarfed Me

Back in the third world, we used to have cactus and aloe vera plants in our backyard. We would skinned them from their thorns, using a nail cutter and scissors, until they’re flawless and bald. Of course, our poor mother would be so angry why we would do that to those poor plants. Well, you […]

After more than 9 years and some three billion miles away from our Earth, we finally all got a clear, more defined photos of Pluto last Tuesday via NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft!

The Antelope Slot Canyon is one for the Bucket List. At least, when you’re visiting Arizona. Yes, it’s hot out there, too, but the state has so much to offer, despite its arid soils, flat lands, canyons, plateaus and rivers. The Antelope Canyon is breathtaking. Like, its beauty will literally hold your breath—until you hear […]

Inside 911 memorial and Museum in New York City.

What’s Inside the 911 Memorial and Museum in New York

I finally made it to the 911 Memorial and Museum in New York last July 4th weekend. I had two chances to visit this place before but I didn’t want to do it alone. Then, last weekend, a friend was free and we went there together. Visiting the 911 Memorial Museum was a bit emotional. […]

Last Column of the Twin Towers inside the 911 Memorial Museum in New York City.

The Last Column of the Twin Towers

They call this as The Last Column of the Twin Towers. It is called so because it was the last column standing that was removed from the Ground Zero, where the Twin Towers used to stand tall and proud. When the workers and rescuers pulled it out from the ground, they wrote (or vandalized?) it […]

Murals at Coney island, Brooklyn, New York.

Coney Island Murals

One of the things I did when I went to New York last weekend was to visit Coney Island with a friend for the first time. I’ve been going to the City that Never Sleeps in and out since 2011 but I’ve never visited this amusement park by the beach. We were there on July […]
