Alley Keosheyan

With 20+ years in the tourism industry in Northern Arizona, including 7 years at Grand Canyon South Rim and 15 years at Lake Powell, Alley has taken part in virtually every commercial tour there is! She has ridden the Grand Canyon mules, hiked rim to rim, rafted the rapids of the Colorado River (and the smooth bits, too), enjoyed many a houseboat weekend on Lake Powell, logged countless hours on both airplanes and helicopters, walked on air on the Grand Canyon Skywalk and frolicked in the blue-green waters of Havasu Falls. About the only thing on her "to-do" list now is the Tower Butte Helicopter tour! She now makes a living as a freelance writer by day, bass player in a cover band by night.

Scenic Grand Canyon Airlines heard your collective eye rolls, moans,  groans and “are we there […]

Page, Arizona Hotel Alternatives

By Alley Keosheyan / September 26, 2017

Vacations are awesome. Hotels? Not so much. Cramped living quarters, spending a fortune (and gaining weight) eating three meals a day at restaurants, and coming home to a mountain of dirty laundry makes you want to take a vacation from your vacation. Surely, there has to be a better way to go on your upcoming […]

Lake Powell Canyon Adventure Boat Tour

By Alley Keosheyan / September 1, 2017

You wouldn’t to go Paris without visiting the Eiffel Tower; or visit San Francisco without driving over the Golden Gate Bridge. Take a trip to London without seeing Big Ben? What would be the point? So why would you go to Page, Arizona and leave Lake Powell off your agenda? If you thought it was […]

How To Get A Permit For The Wave Arizona

By Alley Keosheyan / May 10, 2017

As the saying goes, “it wasn’t a matter of ‘if’ but a matter of ‘when.’” In this case, the “when” was the summer of 2009, when the powers-that-be at Microsoft thought it would be a fabulous idea to include a photo of The Wave in Paria Canyon, Arizona on the desktop wallpaper of Windows 7.[1] […]

“Help! Antelope Canyon Tours Are Sold Out…”

By Alley Keosheyan / April 12, 2017

Once upon a time, Antelope Canyon was a relatively obscure attraction near Page, Arizona. Known as “the Crack” or “the Corkscrew,” you could go and visit it virtually any time you wanted; chances were good that you’d have it all to yourself.

By Alley Keosheyan / March 24, 2017

Antelope Canyon Alternative Tours

By Alley Keosheyan / February 20, 2017

Antelope Canyon…you’ve “been there and done that.” Even if you haven’t, second-hand accounts of teeming hordes of people being herded along, reminiscent of the lines at Disneyland, are enough to turn you off to this attraction completely. A recent review on TripAdvisor even went as far as to say that “Wal-Mart on Black Friday isn’t […]
