Five great places to see Native American rock art

Five great places to see Native American rock art Dec 24th, 2010 at 1:00PM: I often hear people saying the U.S. has a short history. Actually it's as ancient as anywhere else. Before the Europeans took over this land there were hundreds of Native American cultures living here. Some have survived; others have disappeared. One of the most evocative reminders of their civilizations is the rock art of the American Southwest. Here are five good places to see some. ...

Native American rock art damaged in Agua Fria National Monument Dec 21st, 2010 at 11:30AM: Rare petroglyphs at Agua Fria National Monument in Arizona have been damaged by vandals, Arizona Central reports. The art, dating back 2,000 years to the little-understood Archaic period, was covered in paint and defaced with obscene words. Images of the graffiti aren't available at this time, but it's not hard finding other examples of defaced Native American rock art. The picture above was...

Dog bites passenger and flight attendant, forces US Airways landing in Pittsburgh Dec 7th, 2010 at 12:00PM: Mandy is one tough bitch. On US Airways Flight 522 from Newark to Phoenix, this 12-pound Manchester terrier busted out of its cage. You would have too ... if the drugs had worn off. With no more sedatives in her system, Mandy bit a man sitting next to her 89-year-old owner. Then, the dog shot up and down the aisle, also biting a flight attendant, according to the NY Post. As a result of this...

Bullets found on Southwest flight by CNN photographer going to cover Sarah Palin

Bullets found on Southwest flight by CNN photographer going to cover Sarah Palin Nov 24th, 2010 at 8:00AM: Let your kids kick the seats in front of them: it could save your life. If you're the passenger being inconvenienced, it may behoove you to find a way to cope. A kid who would otherwise be branded a royal pain found a loaded gun magazine ... that should have been in the hands of a law enforcement official ... on a Southwest Airlines flight. To make matters worse, the media was actually on the...

Photo of the Day (11.14.10) Nov 14th, 2010 at 6:00PM: Congratulations to Flickr user twoeightnine on this absolutely stunning shot of the Grand Canyon.

Wondering how to take your own Ansel Adams-worthy masterpiece like this one?...

New York: best and worst city in schismatic survey

New York: best and worst city in schismatic survey Oct 21st, 2010 at 12:00PM: If you want to travel like a local, then it makes sense to know something about your destination ... and isn't the best city to live attractive? It's the kind of place you'd want to explore and see why it's so loved. And at the same time, you'd probably want to avoid the worst of the worst – who would want to go there? Well, a new Harris Interactive poll makes this thinking hard to...

Getting drunk: Twenty cities that don't know how to handle their liquor

Getting drunk: Twenty cities that don't know how to handle their liquor Oct 8th, 2010 at 9:00AM: California loves to get wasted! San Diego and San Jose are the top two cities that drink stupidly, according to a survey by Insurance.com. They lead the country in alcohol-related driving violations, a dubious distinction to say the least. So, if you step into the crosswalk in these two spots, take an extra second to look both ways. The reasons for hitting this list vary and include proximity...

Immigration law costs Arizona hotels a bundle

Immigration law costs Arizona hotels a bundle Sep 29th, 2010 at 1:00PM: The cost of closing down the borders may be higher than you think. At least, that's what the Arizona Hotel and Lodging Association is saying. Tourists have cut back their visits to the state, the association believes, because of the recent controversial immigration law. Tourism and travel companies claim they've lost millions of dollars because of how the state is being perceived. According to...

Suit up: The best whitewater rafting in the U.S. Sep 26th, 2010 at 1:00PM: When it comes to whitewater, bigger is not always better. In fact, some of the best whitewater paddling experiences can be had on rivers that barely break the Class III rating. Those who love to run these rivers know the importance of the rush, but also appreciate the scenery, local culture, and accessibility of a river. Here are some of the best US whitewater destinations based on the overall...

Explore Lake Powell by houseboat this fall

Explore Lake Powell by houseboat this fall Sep 1st, 2010 at 8:00AM: When the Glen Canyon Dam was built back in 1966, it created Lake Powell, the second largest man-made lake in the United States behind Lake Mead. Covering more than 250 square miles in area, Lake Powell falls along the border of Utah and Arizona, a spectacularly beautiful region of the country that offers picturesque sandstone cliffs, winding canyons, and sun drenched vistas. It is truly an amazing...

The best places in the world to smoke a cigar

The best places in the world to smoke a cigar Aug 19th, 2010 at 3:35PM: Smoking a cigar the correct way demands a critical mix of solitude, contemplation, and most important, awareness of surroundings. All other things become subservient to the act of observing and evaluating. With this game plan in play, the smoker's post-ignition environs take on as much importance as the flavor, taste, and draw of the tobacco. Here is one man's list of the top ten places in the...

Top five cities for travel spending ... and the bottom of the barrel, too Jul 25th, 2010 at 12:00PM: Hey, Arlington, Virginia residents, why are you spending so much on travel?

Nationwide, the norm came in at $1,571 for 2009. Meanwhile, Detroit residents spent a meager $1,158 per household on travel...

Solar plane flies nonstop for a week

Solar plane flies nonstop for a week Jul 17th, 2010 at 1:30PM: We recently reported on the historic flight of the Solar Impulse, the first solar-powered plane to fly through the night. Now another barrier has been broken. The Zephyr solar plane has flown nonstop for seven days. Unlike the Solar Impulse, which carried a pilot, the Zephyr is an unmanned drone built by the UK defense firm Qinetiq. Drones have seen extensive service in Afghanistan and Iraq...

From four-wheeling to cattle roping, saying 'I do' just got a little more adventurous

From four-wheeling to cattle roping, saying 'I do' just got a little more adventurous Jun 26th, 2010 at 10:00AM: Weddings were never my thing. Between the dress, the invitations, the cakes, the chaos - the concept is too overwhelming for me to digest. I've participated and planned dozens of weddings for my nearest and dearest and while I couldn't be happier for their nuptials, I'd be the first one barefoot on an island eloping without witness if I were to get married (sorry, Mom). But for those who want a...

Road trip: The best roadside attractions on the east and west coasts

Jun 15th, 2010 at 11:30AM: Road trips are meant to be fun, meaningful, and inspire some reflection as you set out for the great open roads. When the driving gets a little dull, though, there's plenty to see on the side of the road. The eastern portion of the United States is home to many world-recognized sites, but many of these grandiose tourist destinations overshadow the lesser-known, roadside attractions that are...

Photo of the Day (6.13.10) Jun 13th, 2010 at 7:00PM: Well doesn't this look refreshing? Flickr user AlphaTangoBravo / Adam Baker caught this moment of bliss during a recent hiking trip along the border of Arizona and Utah. When you've been hiking all day under the heat of an unrelenting sun, this is apparently what happens - you find a nearby stream to cool off. I love the pose - the figure in the water seems to be enjoying a serious moment of...

Congresswoman wants to expand nation's oldest archaeological preserve Apr 29th, 2010 at 3:00PM: On Interstate 10 between Tucson and Phoenix is one of America's most enduring ancient mysteries--a giant adobe structure called Casa Grande. It was erected by the Hohokam, a people who built towns where Tucson and Phoenix are today and who turned the desert green with an extensive system of irrigation. Ironically, the modern city of Phoenix was founded by American settlers who cleared out the...
