Oct 16, 2012 - Red Rocks State Park

We took a wonderful hike in Red Rocks State Park. The scenery in and around Sedona is so spectacular that it's hard to choose just a few favorite pictures, as you can see. The property was owned by Jack and Helen Frye. Jack was the president of TWA. The abandoned home on the top of the hill was built in 1948.

Oct 14, 2012 - Crescent Moon Ranch at Red Rock Crossing

We began our day by taking a ranger-led hike along a riparian area and the lagoons of Dead Horse Ranch State Park. The ranger took us along the man-made irrigation ditch and along the Verde River. We saw areas of beaver activity and were delightfully surprised by an otter who popped up right in front of us in one of the lagoons. We packed a picnic lunch and hiked for a bit in the gorgeous area of Crescent Moon Ranch at Red Rock Crossing (Red Rock State Park.) The area is known for its scenic beauty and for the vortexes in the area. The...

Apr 22, 2008 - Day 10 Tuesday 22nd April, Red Rock State Park Arizona (pg 8 F8)

Day 10 Tuesday 22nd April, Red Rock State Park (Arizona pg 8 F8) Tonight we are free camping overlooking the Red Rock State Park, a place true to its name – lots of red rock/granite. We commenced our journey along the famous Route 66 stopping at Peaches Springs (part of Hualipai Indian Reservation) for morning tea; the town consisted of a Deli and one or two other shops. Our next stop was the Seligman where we bought a few souvenirs of Route 66. The terrain was flat, straight roads and little vegetation. At Ash Fork we left Route 66 and...

May 19, 2007 - Flagstaff, Arizona

We headed out on Saturday and drove the 220 miles to Flagstaff, Arizona. We pulled in to J & H RV Park located on US 89. We have stayed here several times before and like the quiet and peaceful atmosphere. There are about 50 sites with several spaces that can accommodate larger rigs. Even though there are beautiful trees throughout the park you can still get satellite reception. (a must for Doug when there is a NASCAR race scheduled!) We went to dinner at a place called Black Bart's Saloon where the waiters and waitresses perform popular...

Well, we are done here in Arizona. My Mom is going to spend the next few months with my sister in Pinole and is currently on the way there.

We are off to Sedona AZ, the north rim of the Grand Canyon and then stop in Utah to visit my brother Kevin and family for a few days. To all of you who sent kind words of condolences after my Fathers death, beleive me they meant a great deal. At the end of the...

As we drove into Flagstaff we could see the snow on the top of Mt. Humphreys. Yesterday we drove from Flagstaff through Oak Creek Canyon into Sedona, Arizona.What a beautiful city. We drove several suggested roads in and around Sedona. The views were awesome. We were able to visit the "Chapel of the Holy Cross", a Catholic church built in and on the side of a mountain.

Sep 29, 2005 - Flagstaff/Sedona, Arizona

We were able to stay a couple of nights with Bethany's friend Daisy who was dogsitting at a house in Flagstaff. That was a lucky break for us. Both days we drove down to nearby Sedona which must be the most beautifully located town in America. It's surrounded by these amazing red rocks. We stopped off at Slide Rock Park and watched the kids playing on the natural slide in the creek. It was great fun. We drove around the town to view all the rocks and did a crazy drive up a dirt track to get some great views of the town and rocks. Neither of...

Jun 12, 2004 - Sedona, Arizona

From http://www.visitsedona.com CHAPEL OF THE HOLY CROSS: MODERN SCULPTURE ON THE ROCKS Perched on a spur of red rock two hundred feet above the desert floor is an architectural and engineering marvel. A cross, which seems to support the structure, soars from its craggy base and catches the eye of all who drive the magnificent scenic route into Sedona. The site was selected by Marguerite Brunswig Staude, who had held her vision of building a contemporary monument to God for almost 30 years. In 1932, as she was leaving St. Patrick's...

May 28, 2004 - Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon

Yesterday I went on a day tour to the Grand Canyon - it was magnificent! I don't think there is any way my photos could do it justice. When we arrived our guide Mike had us close our eyes right up until we got to the legde from where we could see the grand canyon - when we opened our eyes the view was breathtaking. I knew that it was going to be big but not that big - it nearly looked fake! We stopped for a while taking photos and then went on a 2km walk to another observation point. Along the way there were lots of other good photo spots....

May 20, 2004 - Sedona Arizona. An amazing place

Left Scottsdale this morning and had breakfast at Denny's with George. Around 9 AM we went to Payson and saw the "other" house that George and Winnie own. It was very nice. From there we drove up to Sedona and saw the most unbelievable country in the world. Wow was it nice. We had lunch at the Red Planet Diner and to honor our good friend Rich, Larry had the Red Planet Burger. I could not get that high up so I settled for a Turkey Bruger but Rich will be proud of me since I added Pickles, Ketsup and Mustard. We asked the Waitress what we...
