Mar 28, 2018 - Sedona, AZ

We decided to take a side trip to Sedona based on a suggestion from our good friend JoJo. Thanks!! It is a wonderful little town south of Flagstaff surrounded by some incredible butte, mountain and canyon scenery!! The drive down from Flagstaff takes you right thru Oak Creek Canyon. What an awesome, amazing drive! Yes, the top was down. It was tall canyon walls on either side of you or canyon valleys that seem to drop out of sight. Once in town we parked and browsed many of the specialty shops, art galleries and boutiques. This place is...

Mar 20, 2018 - Sedona's Red Rock Country

Sedona is an Arizona desert town near Flagstaff that’s surrounded by red-rock buttes, steep canyon walls and pine forests. It’s noted for its mild climate and vibrant arts community. Uptown Sedona is dense with New Age shops, spas and art galleries. 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.

2018 RV Adventure

Jun 18, 2017 - Sedona and Back

Today we drove down to Sedona. The way be drove down was the scenic way, at least for me. Bob however had other thoughts. We have driven this route before, well I have, but this time we had the dash cam. However, it didn't work so Bob took some pictures, but once again, the pictures do not convey the beauty. The last time we drove there, the road was not a gravel path. They are working on it in parts and it is rough. There is no way I would drive the motor home down that road, but there was a car pulling a travel trailer around those...

Mar 14, 2017 - A photo shoot near Sedona

I signed up for a photo hike that was sponsored by the National Park Service. Unfortunately, the photographer that was supposed to lead the expedition did not show up. Oh well, I went on a hike with others who did show. Climbed up quite a ways and saw some great views.

Nov 7, 2016 - On To Sedona

I've been waiting a long time to see Sherry and Scott Dunne's new winter home in Sedona. I never expected the majesstic red rocks as I rounded the last curve in the highway and landed in town. Cathedral Rock is just outside Scott's front door and the photos of the area don't do it justice. We toured Tlaquepaque today, shopped, and had lunch. Most of all, I enjoyed just driving around and taking in the scenery including a great spot to enjoy sunset.

2016 Ecuador

Oct 24, 2016 - Sedona, AZ

We traveled to Sedona, AZ, a very scenic and picturesque town set among the red cliffs and rocks of northern Arizona. We met our friends Linda and Darrel Guy, whom we met on our Canadian Maritime Caravan last summer. They live in Mesa, about 140 miles from here and have a summer home in Pine, about 70 miles. Pine is at higher altitude and it allows them to escape the heat of the southern Arizona summer. We spent the day catching up and seeing some of the Sedona sights: picnic lunch in a park, a cliff-side chapel, and supper at a Mexican...

Sep 26, 2016 - California to Arizona

We’ve been driving for 2 days and have done over 1000 kilometres so far. Not bad going. We were very “focussed” in just getting the car from the Avis office back to the hotel. You could say “tense”; I prefer to say “focussed”. But that was nothing compared to driving out of LA. Thankfully, Tamara volunteered to do the first drive. And thank goodness for GPS! I have no idea how someone would work out the spaghetti highways without it. But, we survived and made our way to Palm Springs where we took a lunch break, and then I took over and...

Sep 23, 2016 - Sedona, here we come

As we left Grants NM for Sedona, we had plans to stay at the Sedona Elks Lodge on the hill near the airport so we would have a beautiful view. After reading the comments on the RVing Elks Parking website, we changed our minds and headed to Camp Verde past Sedona. The Sedona Elks RV spaces are 30 amp (and it’s HOT), the sites are slightly sloped down in front (not good for our coach) and it is $30 a night. Verde River RV Park in Camp Verde (former Western Horizon membership) is cheaper with full hook ups. We had very hard side winds and...

Aug 20, 2016 - Sedona, AZ

We left Kingman at 9am, as we wanted to beat the heat and also get to Sedona as early as we could. Our cousins, Alona, Chuck and their mom, Jan who live in Las Vegas were meeting us there. It was a beautiful drive as we slowly climbed from 3500 foot elevation to 7200 in Flagstaff. As we progressed east on I-40, it kept getting greener and greener and then we got to the pines just outside of Flagstaff. We stopped in Williams for a late breakfast and found a really cute town. We wished we had decided to meet our cousins there, as it would...

May 29, 2016 - Allen Bend

It is hot in Sedona today, so we decided to do the Allen Bend Hike. This trail runs along Oak Creek and is mostly in the shade. Our guidebook describes the trail as "...being like a sidewalk." Hardly! Much of the walk is uneven stones loosely pushed together to make for tricky footing. Surface quality finally improved about halfway into our walk. The trail takes one up close to the canyon sidewalls, which have some interesting variations in color/design. We diverted from the main trail to follow a spur down to the banks of Oak Creek, which...

May 27, 2016 - Wilson Canyon

Today we hiked in to Wilson Canyon, which is a beautiful climb with the trail repeatedly criss-crossing Wilson Creek. It hasn't rained for months here, so the creek was just a trickle; but the stream bed (even without major water) is pretty.Vegetation on the hike was a interesting mix of Ponderosa Pine, Cottonwood, Juniper, Prickly Pear Cacti, and Yuccas. Not your typical forest mixture, The rock is mostly red, but in places the red is mixed with gray/blue granite. The trail climbs to Wilson Canyon, which is a three-sided box canyon....

May 25, 2016 - Palatki National Monument

About 15 miles southwest of Sedona is the Palatki National Heritage Site. Palatki consists of a relatively intact cliff dwelling, represented by 5 interconnected living and work spaces. Also on the site is a large wall of petroglyphs and pictographs, some dating back 5000 years or more. Palatki (which means "Red House" in Hopi language) was inhabited by Sinaguan people. Several families are thought to have lived at Palatki, two of which have their family/clan symbols engraved above the dwelling (i.e., like house signs). The...
