Summer 2008 ATV trips to the Pembina Gorge

December 27, 2010

A compilation of video from atv trips to the Canadian border in North Dakota. The songs are Cochise by Audioslave and Power Trip by Monster Magnet. Where we are riding is the Pembina River Valley, or Pembina Gorge and it is north of Langdon, ND and just southwest of Morden, Manitoba. Most of the riding is done on a Polaris Outlaw 525. We also shoot trap and chop some wood, MANTAGE!!!! Nowhere near as cool as the Flagstaff Fury videos, but that’s pretty much what got us started making these videos so check them out, just search Flagstaff Fury. Edited by Kyle Dunnigan.

Day Trips Around Phoenix

June 22, 2010

There are many ways to save money in a trying economy. Many families are choosing to take smaller trips that are much closer to home. This is a great way to explore the area where you live and spend some quality time together with your loved ones. Saving money is especially important during times of economic crisis or hardship. Traveling close to home can be rewarding. It is easy to forget about the special things that lie within driving distance. Even if you do not live in Phoenix but are visiting the area, you will be pleased to discover the many fantastic sites to see in and around this lovely city. 

One amazing destination just two hundred miles north of the city is the Grand Canyon. This is one of those famous locations that everyone has heard of, even if you have never been there. Getting to the Grand Canyon is just as fun as the time you will spend there. As there are two different ways that can be taken to reach it, you can choose to take a train with the family from the Grand Canyon Railways which is south of I-40. Take exit 163. If you take the other route by the smaller city of Tusayan, this is where the Grand Canyon IMAX theater is located. Either way you go, it is fun for everyone. 

If you have children then they will certainly enjoy a visit to the Sunset Crater and Meteor Crater. Sunset Crater was created due to volcanic activity. There are organized tours that one can participate in to check it out. It can be found on Route 66, which is very well known to most North Americans. Take a ride down this infamous road to experience something new. The Meteor Crater is something entirely different and is located east of Flagstaff. It is believed to be the location where a meteor once hit the earth. Sign up for a tour here if it is something that intrigues you. 

Montezuma Castle is a wonderful place to visit and it is not all that far from Phoenix. It can be found nestled in the Verde Valley and it is open for tours every day of the year. This fascinating five story structure is said to have been inhabited by the Sinagua Indians in the 12th century. It is a national monument and definitely worth bringing your camera along for. If you continue on north from here, you will reach the well known and loved city of Sedona. It is known for being home to some of the most gorgeous landscape in the region. 

The Pima Air and Space Museum is perfect for museum lovers. There are more than 250 aircrafts on display in this museum. It has been in operation since the year 1976. The museum is located about 110 miles south of Phoenix. It is actually not far from Tuscon. There are so many places to visit around Phoenix. Whether you are traveling alone or with a group, there is something that everyone will enjoy.
