5 Creepy Facts About Arizona

1. In 1997, a group of Arizona residents (including the governor) supposedly witnessed an extraterrestrial aircraft hovering over Phoenix for nearly two hours. This strange happening went on to make headlines nationwide, but the question of who — or what — was behind the unidentified flying object still remains.

2. Before it was renumbered, Arizona had a Highway 666. So many accidents occurred on the road that it became known as the “Devil’s Highway.”

3. Arizona is home to a haunted cave. Grand Canyon Caverns, located 300 feet underground, has seen at least eight deaths or burials on the property. Visitors can embark on a ghost walk, with the only light source being the eerie glow of an EMF meter. Are you brave enough to meet these restless spirits lurking below the surface?

4. There’s a portion of Arizona known as “Skinwalker Ranch” after a creepy Navajo urban legend. As the story goes, medicine men have both good and evil powers, and they must choose which path to take. Those who embrace the darkness exploit human trust by disguising themselves as animals, traveling alongside vehicles and luring the drivers out by tapping on the windows. Those who dare step outside are never seen again…

5. Within the aforementioned town of Two Guns is a place called the Apache Death Cave. In 1878, a group of Apache warriors raided a Navajo camp and murdered everyone, save for three girls who they took as prisoners. The Apaches were hiding out in a cave, where they were discovered by another band of Navajos. When the Navajo warriors learned of the girls’ fate, they threw burning drywood into the cave and murdered 42 Apaches. Today, much like the rest of Two Guns, the cave sits abandoned and forgotten.
