Rebecca Miller

My name is Rebecca and I see the world through a camera lens. I’m always in a constant state of evaluating my surroundings, and looking at the ways color and light affect a scene or situation. Through my education of photography at the University of Arizona, I have grown to appreciate photographs that capture the essence of the place. This is why I can’t help taking hundreds of pictures when I hike or travel to new places.

My goal when I graduate is to bring my enthusiasm for travel and photography together and work for the Travel Channel or a travel magazine. I believe that by interning with Experience Arizona, I will gain additional experience with adventure writing and photography that will bring me one step closer to achieving my goals.

Personal Photo Gallery

I love the outdoors and enjoy taking pictures that show its beauty. Click here to see some pictures from my personal gallery

Pima Air and Space Museum

I recently spent a few hours out at the Pima Air and Space Museum and found that the most interesting aspects of the museum may not be what everyone sees when they walk through the doors.

Highway 87

Join Rebecca as she makes a wrong turn on her way to Chandler and finds a wonderful surprise. Rebecca takes aim at some less seen places along Highway 87 in her new photo gallery and finds that the road less taken may bring the greatest reward.

High Jinks Ranch

Nestled in the northern side of the Catalina Mountains along the Cody Trail Number 9 section of the Arizona Trail lies High Jinks Ranch. Once owned by the infamous Buffalo Bill Cody, the ranch is now being remodeled into a rustic bed and breakfast and martial arts dojo. Rebecca Miller and I recently received a tour of the ranch and found it to be a beautiful and magical place. If you enjoy hiking along the Arizona Trail, Arizona history or just delicious homemade apple pie, you'll want to read her story.

Skiing Snowbowl

When most people think of Arizona, an image of a dry, hot desert comes to mind. And it's true that Arizona has its fair share of that, but it also has tall, snow-clad mountains that invite skiers from hundreds of miles. The Arizona Snowbowl in Flagstaff is one of Arizona's most popular ski resorts. Rebecca Miller recently spent a weekend skiing the bowl and touring historic Flagstaff. Read about her adventure and why you may never look a pizza the same way ever again.

Chandler Ostrich Festival

What Arizona event has 250 pound bird races, stubborn donkeys, carnival rides, music events, exotic bird shows and enough good food to feed your entire family? The Chandler Ostrich Festival! This annual event celebrates the wonderful ostrich (among other things) and if you enjoy something a little different, you'll want to put this on your bucket list. Rebecca Miller attended the festival last month and came back with a delightful (and delicious) report.

Sabino Creek Hiking Adventure

The Sabino Canyon recreation area is one of the premier hiking locations in southern Arizona. And for good reason. It has awesome hikes and exquisite scenery. One thing you may not know is that there are trails other than the super popular Seven Falls trail. Rebecca Miller recently found another gem of a hike in the area: Sabino Creek. It's a shorter (and easier) hike than Seven Falls. Another thing you may not know about this hike is that it's part of a "lost" trail that was used by soldiers stationed at Fort Lowell in 1888 as a route to get to Mt. Lemmon. If you want to escape the crowds at Seven Falls or find a place to relax and put your feet in the cool water, this could be a trail for you!
