Today we drove from Phoenix with Jerry, Kim, Vickie, Jared and Brandon to visit Sedona. It was a beautiful drive. What surprised us all was it started to snow when we arrived. We were walking to a Mexican restaurant and the largest snowflakes I have ever seen started to fall. It was amazing!
We had a wonderful lunch and laughed so hard at Brandon. He kept dipping chips into the very hot salsa, he almost cried when he felt the heat, then he wanted more and more. He is only three and it was so funny to watch. I wish I had taken a picture of him but I didn’t think to do so.
Sedona's main attraction is its array of red sandstone formations. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The red rocks form a popular backdrop for many activities, ranging from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails.
Sedona was named after Sedona Arabella Miller Schnebly (1877–1950), the wife of Theodore Carlton Schnebly, the city's first postmaster, who was celebrated for her hospitality and industriousness.
We all had a wonderful time. We have a few more days to visit before flying back home. Check back later for more from Arizona.
