Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
What’s more terrifying than a late 17th-century prison in the middle of the Arizona desert that used to house some of the Southwest’s most notorious inmates? If it’s haunted, of course. Yuma Territorial Prison is absolutely crawling with the ghosts of those formerly incarcerated within its harsh, unforgiving walls, and you can experience the paranormal activity firsthand.
The park is open daily from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. From June 1 thru September 30, hours are modified to 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Thursday-Monday (closed Tuesday and Wednesday.) Admission is $8 for everyone 14 and up, $4 for ages 7-13, and no charge for children six and under. Visit the website or Facebook page to learn more.
