I'm an east coast girl living in a west coast world. I grew up in New England before moving to SoCal for several years. I then lived in NYC or a year before moving to AZ in 2009. I worked in the entertainment industry for many years of my adult life and have a deep love for photography, writing, and traveling around the U.S. as well as to far-flung locations around the world. Travel is my life and writing about it is a dream!
Do you enjoy exploring historic or abandoned structures? It happens to be one of my favorite pastimes. You can find some fascinating places on a number of trails throughout the state. On one abandoned place hike in New Mexico, you’ll take a trail to an abandoned defensive structure that was built by Navajos.
