FARMINGTON — The first of two episodes of "Ghost Adventures" filmed on the Navajo Nation will air on Saturday.

In each episode of the Travel Channel series, ghost hunters Zak Bagans and Aaron Goodwin, along with audio and visual technicans Billy Tolley and Jay Wasley, visit locations that reportedly are haunted.

As part of the investigation, they interview residents, eyewitnesses and experts about the alleged paranormal activity and use scientific equipment and technology to obtain physical evidence, according to a program synopsis provided by the Travel Channel.

Filming on the Navajo Nation occurred earlier in the year and with permission from the tribe.

The first episode, "Skinwalker Canyon," will premiere at 7 p.m. Saturday on the Travel Channel.

The episode focuses on the crew's investigation of a location on tribal land that is described as "a place where many residents refuse to enter in fear of encountering shape-shifting creatures," an online description of the show states.

The second episode, "Upper Fruitland Curse," will premiere at 7 p.m. on June 24.

In this episode, the crew visits a family in Upper Fruitland who are "troubled" by a ghost, according to the show's description.
