Summer with the Stars
School is back in session and summer is drawing to a close, but there's still time to catch the "Summer with the Stars" exhibit at the Lowell Observatory. The exhibit has been running since June and will conclude at the end of this month. Guests recommend the Lowell's 24" Alvan Clark refractors, and for those of you who want to come back in the future, by this time next year the observatory will have a new main attraction, the Discovery Channel Telescope a 4.2-meter telescope rising seven stories above the top of a cinder cone forty miles from Flagstaff. Hope you're not afraid of heights.
Everyone has heard of the Grand Canyon, but even if you've been there, many people still do not appreciate the raw beauty and wonder of this natural spectacle. That's why Imax has teamed up with National Geographic to bring us a once in a lifetime experience; "Grand Canyon" an Imax movie.
The Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff hosts a series of cultural festivals each summer. Over Memorial Day weekend I thoroughly enjoyed the Zuni Cultural Festival and so I looked forward to the Hopi Cultural Festival this 4th of July weekend.
I headed for the high country for 4th of July and found some new hotels to try. One of the hotels, was the Marriott Fairfield Inn.
Lynn Rovelstad of Flagstaff is the proud owner of Katie’s Cupcakes, named after one of her daughters.The business which is right in front of Furniture Barn is set in an aluminum trailer, with brightly colored Adirondack chairs spread out in the front. Katie’s Cupcakes sells cupcakes amongst other things, along with pastries, and coffee. The Mother of two girls says that her goal was to "leave the person feeling a little better than when they came." It appears she's doing just that! See the rest of the story HERE.
