I Want To Believe

Well, I already do actually. In fact I believe in just about everything until it is disproved. It makes like a little more fun.
You guys know me.. I love to explore. I love going to places that are a bit dangerous. Well, on the way home from California a little while a go, Brad and I took quite the detour. Instead of driving the usual way home, we went through a little town called Rachel. Along the little road called Highway 93, also known as The Extraterrestrial Highway. It is said it is the closest road to Area 51. We went late at night, and stayed in a little hotel along the outskirts and drove through it again on the way home. It was very eerie, and very fun.
Highlights Of The Journey:
Seeing strange flashing lights in the sky.
Seeing strange white lights follow along side the car.
Pulling over, turning the car off and looking at all the millions of stars.
Seeing several official vehicles with spotlights looking over across the desert
making sure no one was out there.  (Spooky!)
Stopping at The Little A'Le'Inn for an energy drink, small town folk and a fun little gift shop.
Buying myself a hand typed, self pubblished "Guide to Area 51" by a so called Ex-Agent. 
(Probably not something I should be bragging about online.) 
Seeing random mile markers vibrating from no apparent reason.
Then stopping as I got close to take video. 


  1. OOO! SOunds like so much fun! I am totally jealous right now! :)

  2. It was so much fun Ryan!! And we didn't get in trouble or anything for doing what we did. That was good. :)

  3. Thanks for posting this. I have been reading your blog for some time now, but I have never commented. My dad died three weeks ago. Our trip through Rachel, NV is one of my fondest memories. We were on a road trip from Minnesota to the Nevada desert. We ate at that Ale-Inn too! This was 18 years ago, but I remember the gift shop and all the stuff tacked up on the walls! My dad turned down a road he wasn’t supposed to turn on, and suddenly we had two unmarked white Jeep Cherokees on either side of us! We got out of there quick. These pictures brought back memories of that wonderful trip with my wonderful dad! (and yes, it was TOTALLY creepy….we saw all sorts of weird things too!)


  4. Madelyn! That is a wonderful story!! I'm so glad you and your dad got to experience that.. the unmarked white jeeps are what we saw! And some black trucks.. It was creepy, but still so much fun!

  5. Looks like spooky fun, my kind of a good time. My husband would of loved it. See the day he was adopted there was a UFO sighting in the same town. We always joke about that. LOL Cool pictures!

  6. This looks so cool! Thanks for sharing these great photos.
    Happy New Year!

  7. Thanks Alma and Ellen! I love all things alien and UFO. :)

  8. oh gosh, so cool! I would love to go there one day! i love aliens and ghosts and all those kinds of things! =]

  9. You definitely need to travel with me! Earlier that day,Brad and I went to an abandoned water park! I can't wait to post photos of THAT!

  10. those are some great pictures!!!!

  11. Eeee! Such a great post, I get so excited when I see posts like this. <3 Please do more, whenever you can! I'd LOVE to go camping at Marfa and see the supposed Marfa lights. <3 I also would love to take that detour! O.O Awesome!

  12. Wow, this is sooo cool! Ive always been curious about Area 51 so I watch documentaries about it and try to find out as much as I can. Thanks for sharing this. So interesting. I would love to explore so nearby!

  13. alien highway? abandoned waterpark? how do you find all these cool things?!

  14. Just found your blog a couple of days ago. I am loving it! I love to explore as well. When my husband and I got together 11 years ago, we both lived with our families still. To get away, we found an atlas that listed ghost towns on it. We explored them all in Utah and a couple over the border in Idaho. Awesome times. I just finished reading a book I think you might like: "Lost Landscapes." It has everything about Utah's past in the way of true ghost stories and UFO sightings. I think its by Linda Dunning. Hope you get a chance to check it out and you enjoy it as much as I did.

    1. I am so going to check that book out!! It sounds awesome! I once had a goal to collect books about hauntings, ghost towns, and stuff like that from everywhere I lived.. It fits! Thanks so much!!
