xx Tombstone, AZ and other sites along the way.
« Thread started on: May 2nd, 2008, 4:59pm »

Just thought I would throw and update on the happenings and hauntings in Tombstone and various other locales along the way there and back.

The first place we stopped was in Williams, AZ, a little town about 35 miles from Flagstaff. It is most famous now as the start point of the 70 mile Grand Canyon Railroad Tour, which leaves from Williams and heads 70 miles to the Grand Canyon and then back. We stayed at an old hotel called the Red Garter, that was a bordello back in the day. Misty and I stayed in the Madam's room, which was supposedly the most haunted. Other than a few sounds that I am sure were the old building, not much happened there. We got in a good hike around the South Rim of the Grand Canyon before heading down to Tombstone. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful is all I can say.

Our next stop was Tombstone, where we stayed in a pretty cute little setup called Katie's Cabins, for the first two nights. New, cute little all wood cabins, fully furnished and really fun to stay in. Has a loft with queen bed, a futon bed/couch on the main floor and a room with a set of bunkbeds, so it sleeps 4-5 people quite comfortably, and very inexpensive. No ghosts though because they are brand new. The first night there, Misty and I went to check out old Tombstone, which is about 5 blocks of Allen St. that is blocked off to any motor traffic. This consisted of all of the old buildings, most rebuilt or remodeled from the original 1880s sites. The only building still 100% original was the Bird Cage Theater. Wow, what a creepy little place that was. Well we hung out on the street until just after 3 am, due to the reports of apparitions being sighted nightly at that time. We didn't see much, but you could hear bootsteps on the wooden walkways now and then. Not much activity though. Tom Young met up with us the next day and we pretty much just tooled around Tombstone and checked out the sights, squeezing in a trip to Kartchner Caverns for a tour at one point. Very cool tour if you get the chance to go, I highly recommend it. Friday, Misty and I checked out of the cabin and into the San Jose House Doc Holliday room, just two doors down from Tom in his Wyatt Earp room. These were supposedly haunted as well, but no such luck during out stay. The rooms were ok other than their being right off of Fremont Street, which is the main thoroughfare through Tombstone, so traffic will wake you up around 7:30 - 8:00 am, and realize that these rooms were originally built back in the 1880s and haven't been updated past the 1970s since then. Friday night we spent in our first investigation location at the Bird Cage. While there were a lot of movements, weird sounds, heavy breathing and a few faint shadows, the only thing really seen of significance by anyone was Misty who saw a ghost orb with her own eyes and not on film. The orb zipped down in front of her and into the room in the basement, across from the poker tables, that Wyatt Earp and Josephine used to have their love affair, still 100% the way it was back during that time period. We are still reviewing photos, EVP and film to see if anything was captured so I will update you on that if anything comes up. The only other incident was Tom supposedly channeled the spirit of a cowboy that was in Tombstone after the whole Ok Corral episode and after the Earp's had left. He was supposedly a blacksmith that had been killed accidently, but refused to move on due to the fact that he had killed a man in self defense and was scared to cross over and face judgement. Rather a weird occurrence and we have it all on film and EVP so we are reviewing it now.

Our second haunted location scheduled to investigate was on Saturday at Big Nose Kate's Saloon. Big Nose Kate was Doc Holliday's girlfriend for those who haven't seen Tombstone the movie. After the saloon was cleared out for the night at around 11:30 or so, we were given the tour of the facility by Bobby the owner/manager of the place. The activity started almost immediately and we were constantly hearing footsteps, seeing shadows and chasing cold spots from start to finish. In the basement where a mining entrance was located and is now the gift shop, we made contact with an entity called the "Swamper", real name Charlie. He was the caretaker of the mine entrance that the miners used to come out of the nearby mines and straight into the basement bar area. Needless to say Charlie likes women and is quite the horny little bugger. He didn't like me or Tom or Bobby very much, seeing us as threats to his attempts to woo Misty and the bartender Misty. As I was in the basement with Tom trying to get Charlie to respond to us, another entity entered and froze me in my tracks to where I could not move and was chilled to the bone. Tom told me that a petite female entity had come down the back stairs and was standing right in front of me, very interested in me, due to the fact that she was supposedly a prostitute from the 1880s. Tom told me that she was doing and saying some rather provocative things towards me. Very entertaining if you weren't me. LOL Misty came back downstairs to try to make contact with Charlie using her dowsing rods and camcorder. I proceeded to head towards the back stairs to go up to the main floor when the female entity that was now following me around everywhere whispered in my ear rather loudly... TWICE. This was fully audible although I was the only to hear it due to my being at the other end of the basement near the stairs. Wonderful, I now had a hooker ghost following me around whispering not-so-sweet nothings into my ear. Not sure if it was picked up on EVP or not. After this Misty contacted Charlie and was able to get him to use the dowsing rods to answer questions. At one point he crossed the dowsing rods in a "Yes" response to a question, and despite Misty trying everything to uncross them, they would not. This was definitely the most active location of all that we visited and we hated to leave. We are reviewing film, video and EVP for any solid evidence so I will keep you updated on this one as well.

Sunday we left Tombstone, after spending 4 days checking out the town, the dozens of tourist shops, and even the local town cemetary, no not Boothill. Boothill is relocated and you have to pay to get into it so we skipped it. The town cemetary is extremely creepy and a must visit to anyone who goes there. We all drove up to Sedona from there and walked around a few shops for a short time before Tom headed back to Utah. Misty and I went to Jerome, AZ, a little mountain town that has both wine vineyards and a rather old mining history similar to Tombstone. We stayed at a very haunted hotel called the Mile High Inn and Grill. We setup our equipment in the room called the "Spooks, Ghosts and Goblins" room. This is supposedly the most haunted room in the hotel and is frequented by the original owner Jenny and her cat. Yes, a ghost cat. We heard several noises that could not be explained both inside and just outside of our room. The clincher moment came while I was checking my camera and a disembodied cat meow sounded from inside our room. Both of us freaked a little on this one, because it sounded so creepy and loud. After that it just got more active and there were footsteps in our room and Misty said that while I was asleep, something jump up on the bed with a heavy thud right by my feet. The cat I am assuming because that has been reported by several people. We heard the cat possibly one other time, but not sure since it wasn't as clear as the first meow. I am hoping the first one is recorded on my video tape. We also got some cool ghost orbs on the stairway off the main foyer area outside our room.

Our last stop was a night in Sedona. No ghosts on this one, just a most wonderful hike around Bell Rock and Cathedral Rock. A 3 mile hike to be exact and well worth all of the pictures that we took of the beautiful scenery. We were supposed to do some skywatching but we were both so tired from everything that we ended up falling asleep and missing out on the skywatch. Sedona really doesn't seem as weird and mystical as all the stories say, but it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in my lifetime, and I would highly recommend anyone interested in seeing it, go there and experience it for yourself. We weren't there long enough to come to any conclusions on the vortexes or UFO sightings, but judging from the landscape and beauty of the place, I would definitely visit it if I were an extraterrestrial.

Well that is it in a nutshell. Ok, a rather large nutshell, but if you want more details about our encounters please let me know and I will be happy to fill in the details I may have missed.
