Atomic Age

The Atomic Era brought with it a lot of anxiety and dark imagery and results. Today, much of it seems like distant history. To those of us old enough, we recall the drills -

Are You Brave Enough to Sleep Here?

A contest was held offering you a delightful tour of the French catacombs, dinner, a scary storytelling time, and then they leave you there to sleep....

Here are contest details

You might have slept in a spooky place before, perhaps a seedy motel in a bad part of town, an arguing couple's home, a really old historic inn, but there are some places that would definitely not be sleep-friendly for most folks.

Mind Matters: It's a Vision Board, Not a Disaster Board

What is on your vision board?

Do you envision these every day or are your days filled with focusing on what you don't want?

Would your vision board involve being homeless? Having cancer? Getting a divorce? Having an accident? 

Then why do you spend so much time envisioning those?

Scariest Cemeteries

Cemeteries after dark. Why are we so scared by the concept? I mean, it is a place for human remains and memorials, not necessarily anything dark and scary and we know the soul would not want to linger, right?

Summer Horror Movies By Category

You're dreaming of warm water and sandy beaches, fishing on a lake and summer cabins. It's time to put on some summer-themed horror movies and get yourself in the mood. 

I've broken down the summer-themed horror movies by category depending on how you see your summer dreams playing out; RVs/camping, water/beach, desert, summer camp, or theme parks. 

BTW, I also put a * next to the movies I most love to pull out and watch to get in the mood.

Grand Canyon Mummies: The Story of the Momia de la Cueva

Researcher Dennis Guern and I have worked on this series about the Grand Canyon mummies with the hopes of weeding out the details of the 1909 newspaper article about the find and seeing if any of the components are feasible. In today's installment, we hope to bring to life through a fictionalized narrative, a possible scenario for these people -

Reuniting Ghost Hunters for a New Show "Ghost Nation"

Travel Channel has done some fun things like reviving Josh Gates and the new "Expedition Unknown" and the prior "Destination Truth" series that are so beloved. 

Then, they think about rehashing something that died a natural death - ghost hunters shows and their hosts. 

One Foot in Both Worlds: A Real-Life Case

If you ever wonder about people who walk both worlds simultaneously, one world wins. Near-Death experiencers come back to tell the tales.

But some remain tied to the other side so strongly that it gives them signs their fait accompli involves returning to the eternal realm permanently.

This is a real-life story of a dear friend of mine who walked both worlds after four NDEs and finally succumbed to the draw from Eternity -

Haunted Shirley: Update on Object Movement and Meter Reaction

Well, I was okay with the ideal of getting the three haunted Shirley Temple dolls back. They were being bad where they were staying and I don't wish that luck on anyone.

Ghost Investigating 101: Isolation Sessions

I'm honored to work with intelligent, skeptical, organized, and open-minded researchers. Our team, Arizona Paranormal Research, is efficient, critical, inventive, and responsive. Our focus is understanding the how's and why's of ghosts. We test experiments repeatedly to find patterns and understanding how such paranormal events are launched into our mortal stage.

Recently, we did an investigation at an historic church and did our standard isolation sessions. This is when one team member remains alone in the setting with cameras and recorders present and either sits quietly, asks questions, or somehow tries to engage the other side. I am going to share some tips on how to do isolation sessions.

Habituation Situation: Shifting To Formal Documenting

This is a continuation of the series about a landmark study in the early 2000s in the Southern United States in which landowners and their formed research team began to document meticulously the ongoing back and forth with the Bigfoot People that coexisted on the property and around the property in the wildlife management area, lake, and neighboring rural residences.

Pet Cemeteries

My realtor knew I wanted an odd home, so she sent me a listing for a pet cemetery. I knew it was way outside of town in the middle of the desert basically and I wasn't too interested in the isolation with strangers coming and going on my property and questionable well water. But, I did decide to trek over and give it a look, just in case.

The Voynich Manuscript Mystery

The Voynich Manuscript is an illustrated handwritten codex utilizing an undecipherable text.  It was carbon dated from the early 1400s and might be of Italian Renaissance Era.  A Polish book dealer bought it in 1912.  Even though some pages are missing 240 remain.

Mind Matters Series

Our minds have so much involvement in the unexplained that it is truly amazing. How we interpret encounters, how we process sensory input from the ghostly realm, our reactions to Bigfoot infrasound, and our own family dynamic's effects on our home's haunting issues are all just the tip of the iceberg. 

This is an arena of the the unexplained I have needed to address to show the power of the mind to find answers or to create obstacles. 

It applies to the unexplained world, as well as the one we focus on daily. For this reason, I want to focus on the most important tool we have, our minds....

"Missing Link" at Theaters!

I know my readers are going to want to see this one - 

"Missing Link" Mr. Link recruits explorer Sir Lionel Frost to help find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, this trio of explorers travel the world to help their new friend.

Horror Movies With Horrible Endings

Ending a horror film can be a real challenge. There is one faction that believes anything should go, no one should be sacred in the slaughter. Another faction believes you should leave it open ended so the viewer can fill it in with their own imagination. Yet one more faction advocates tying it up neatly and showing the good guys win. So, with too many people to please and perhaps 75-120 minutes of time to tell a story, some horror films seem to cop out in the end....

PBS Studios: Monstrum

I adore PBS and the critical thinking, imaginative programming and great talent involved so when PBS Studios came out with a new series that I know my readers would adore, I have to share!

You know how we para geeks sit around contemplating legend, mythology, scifi, and the universe? Well, PBS Studios totally gets us! Thanks to Dr. Emily Zarka for this superior series! 

Grand Canyon Mummies Versus Death Valley Giants

There is a similar story told of a find in the 1930s in Death Valley, California. The find was stumbled upon by a prospector poking around an ancient mine that caved in, sending him into a cavern. In this installment of the series, let's compare the Grand Canyon supposed find with the Death Valley supposed find.

Death Valley Find

From the book Death Valley Men by Bourke Lee (summarized)

A lost city of gold worth billions of dollars. They’ve needed help to get it out, but people all want too much a share, Smithsonian (Smithsonian involved in Grand Canyon find too) offered 1.5 million instead of the 5 million they offered.

Right in the Panamint Mountains, found by accident. White was prospecting near Wingate Pass at the south end of the range. He was working in an old abandoned mine shaft when the shaft crumbled and he fell below. 

Natural tunnel/cave 20 miles long, through treasure vault, royal palace, and council chamber. It a gallery with stone arches in the eastern slope of the Panamints. 

The arches are high above the valley but the men believed that the valley was filled with water long ago and so this was above the water line and they would land their boats there. (Interestingly, Lovelock Cave was thought to be at the water level of the ancient Lake Lohantan and Grand Canyon find Kinkaid said had steps for 30 yards from the cave entrance to where he believed the water line used to be).

They believe these people lived inside this city long after the lake dried up. (The Paiute legend said that the "Hav-Masuv" people of the Panamints went underground when the water dried up. They spoke of these people having arrived here prior to the Natives, coming by ship and that when they went underground they started to use silver ships that flew in the air).

They believe the people in the caverns had been dead for thousands of years, all mummified.

Gold spears, gold shields, gold statues, gold jewelry, thick gold bands on their arms (gold and copper reported items in Grand Canyon).

He fell into a cavern that was huge and there were a hundred men in it. Some were sitting around a polished table inlaid with gold and precious stones. Men stood around the walls of the room holding shields and spears of solid gold. They all wore leather aprons, covered in gold ornaments and jewels. Thomason believed that they had been having a council meeting when they died all together quite suddenly. (The same conclusion was made by Kinkaid of a male warrior council dying suddenly.)

When the man fell into the chamber room, he had stumbled in the dark. He found that these ancient people had natural gas they used for lantern light down there. He fumbled in the dark, stumbled over a rock lever and gas flames lit up from the candle he was using.

There was a gold statue with the face of the man sitting at the table. He said it was 89-1/2 feet tall. He said he used a sextant to measure it – he carried one for hiking in the desert.

Doors were slats of rock on hinges that pivoted. There was a bar across them and he found a small latch on the short end of the bar and the bar swung up. They understood counterweights.

Treasure: Gold bars and precious stones (similar to Grand Canyon). Treasure rooms inside of big rock bores. Gold stacked in small bars stacked against the walls like bricks. The jewels were in bins cut into the walls. They had stone wheelbarrows to move the gold and jewels. They were easy to move, balanced, with the wheel not on the end so that a man had to lift the weight, but in the center. White fell in, he went in with Fred Thomason twice and then took his wife once.

Fred admitted twice they brought stuff out. First time, filled their pockets with gems and each carried a gold bar. They left the stuff with a friend and went to try and interest someone in their find. A government man was interested, but they went back to the friend to get the items and the friend said he’d never seen them.

The next time, they got more treasure and buried it next to the shaft entrance. They went back to the coast to convince some university people and southwest museum people to come out and they got up on the mountains and he could not find the shaft. A storm had changed the landmarks. The scientists were angry and worked hard to discredit them after that.

White and Thomason admitted they could get back in again. They could enter through the galley windows cut up high on the Panamints on the west side – about 4500 to 5000 feet up. Openings across from the Furnace Creek Ranch. Can see the green of the ranch right below and the Furnace Creek Wash across the valley.

Some men got a Native American (Tom Wilson) to guide him whose grandfather had been through the caves. Far south of the mountains, these men found a mine shaft in the mountain where a shaft shouldn’t be. They rushed off and ordered a lot of rope and checked out the shaft. It was not deep, but did not go anywhere.

Note from the blog: This comparison and the long-held stories of the Smithsonian squirreling away finds makes one wonder if the Department of Ethnology made in conjunction with the Smithsonian worked as a front to claim native finds of treasure and then have the Smithsonian step in to take the treasures away. Perhaps the country wished to secure all its resources including anything of great worth of prior cultures and Spanish conquistadors.

Another Purpose to Bigfoot's Hair Relating to Infrasound?

Bigfoot hair has baffled me for years. 

One thing that comes to mind to most people is that they were built for cold weather. Yeah, a fur coat would be nice, but these folks are hiking around snow--packed mountains barefoot. I don't think the hair is necessarily critical to warmth, but could be very necessary for something the Native People speak of - their hair holding their wisdom.

Grand Canyon Mummies: Google Earth Survey

On all the aspects of the Grand Canyon Mummies topic that Dennis Guern and I will be studying, one aspect is the feasibility of the cave's existence as viewed on Google Earth. We brought in our researcher James Carroll, who has been a real whiz with Google Earth to help us narrow possibilities.

#8 Link Validity of Initialized Names in that Era

Deciding to get a sense of all the locations that meet criteria, we began to do some Google Earth surveys of areas that have had mining (as these mummies apparently mined), lava dams from ancient times 10,000+ years ago where water levels rose to meet the cave entrance area, and Kinkaid's account as well as other researchers surmising potential locales. Let's have a look - 


Interestingly, Prospect Canyon meets two criteria: mining (gold/copper) and a lava dam area with previous raised water levels

Whitmore Canyon Lava Dam

Toroweap Lava Dam

These lava dams are in one area together - 

Kinkaid potential area 

Following Kinkaid's instructions, this is likely the area in which the cave was said to be.

This is some of the east wall that might have offered him the view of the cave.


Horseshoe Mesa (purest grade of copper)

Prospect Canyon (also a known lava dam area, uranium)

Maricopa Point (copper and silver)

Hermit Mines (copper and silver)

Ultimately, considering Kinkaid's points about east wall, potential mining areas for the mummy tribe and areas with dams created over 10,000 years ago from lava causing the water levels to rise, regions named for Egypt and Greek Gods....

To the west, the lava dams that long ago flooded areas of the Grand Canyon with lakes. 

Consider this - 

Lava dams are to the west. That is downstream in this view. The lakes formed by the dams would be the east of that, so we look east of the lava dams.

What is east of that area? Mining hot spots and region named for Egyptian and Greek gods.


Now, last thing we have to do is find a north south run of the Colorado since Kinkaid saw the cave on the east wall. 

He mentioned seeing the sediment levels of what was once a high water level and "staining." 

Of course, many will try to locate his alleged voyage and find ideal conditions, but in the case of Dennis Guern and I, we are looking at all the factors, a bit like the Drake Equation in astronomy that looks for all the best conditions to rate the possibility of life on another planet. 

More episodes of this series are coming soon!

Habituation Situation: It Began With Curious Study

This is the first in a long series for Ghost Hunting Theories regarding a landmark Bigfoot habituation study from the early 2000s in the South. Field notes, photos, and video are being shared here to archive what was, I believe, one of the most intuitive studies of a location that had a Bigfoot clan living alongside the residents in a rural area.

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot

Other than "Letters From the Big Man," a quality film involving Bigfoot is rare. I will give a nod to "Wild" in which Reese Witherspoon's character passes by a Bigfoot in the woods in the latter half of the film.

A new film out on DVD, blu-ray and streaming on April 2nd is a period piece, with well-recognized actors and true quality. And, it involves Bigfoot!

Review: "The Dead Room"

When a terrified family flees a desolate southern New Zealand farmhouse, two cynical scientists and a young psychic are sent to investigate their claims of a haunting. There they encounter a powerful spirit that will protect the house's secrets at all costs. (IMDB description)
