Jun 25, 2007 - Sedona-Off in search of the vortexes

We parked ourselves by about 1:30. Nancy Yeomans had gotten me curious about Sedona, plus I had seen lots of advertisements that mentioned Sedona, so I wanted to go see it. Susan relented, so we had some Arby's for lunch and headed out for Sedona south of Flagstaff. Just taking the jeep allowed us to take the twisting and turning Ariz 89A through the Oak Creek Canyon down to Sedona. We stopped to look at the Oak Creek Canyon scenic overlook. We stopped in uptown Sedona and walked through many of the shops and stores there. It was much...

Jun 12, 2007 - Oak Creek and Sedona AZ

Well, our new home is quite nice. It is L shaped. The fireplace works and with the lights out, it is very, GASP, Romantic. HMMMMMMMMM. Yup, it is! The Chapel was conceived in the early 1900s. Construction was delayed due to the fact that the land was owned by the FEDERAL GOV. A deal was reached and the Chapel was begun in '51 or '53 and completed in '56. The anniversary is commemorated by the banner. The Chapel is no longer used as a church setting, but it is very peaceful to just go and sit. A candle may be lit if that is your choice. The...

May 25, 2007 - Page - Sedona via Grand Canyon

Vandaag zijn we van Page via Bitter Springs, Cedar Ridge en Cameron naar de South Rim van de Grand Canyon gereden. Onderweg reden we langs het westen van de Grand Canyon. Omdat onze route door het Navajo Reservaat liep zijn we onderweg veel Indianen dorpen tegen gekomen. Ook in de kleine stadjes hebben we indianen gezien die aan de kant van de weg handgemaakte sieraden verkochten. De weg slingerde langs de South Rim door het Kaibab National Forest. Nadat we enige stops langs de South Rim gemaakt hadden om de Grand Canyon te bewonderen zijn...

Apr 17, 2007 - Sedona side trip

We were treated by a trip to Sedona by Mark and Dianne. It was an unexpected bonus to our adventure. The beauty cannot be shown by pictures. The weather was perfect that day and we had lunch outside at the Sedona airport as we watched planes take off. It was a cute tourist town and we strongly recommend making a trip there. Had a wonderful day and we will remember it always. Thank you Mark and Dianne.

Mar 15, 2007 - Sedona

Montezuma Castle National Monument is a well preserved cliff dwelling. It is amazing that ancient people lived up in these buildings high up in the cave walls. We also took a trolley ride around Sedona and stopped at the Church in the rocks. The view from up there was great. We visited the vortex's of Sedona and many of the rock formations. Everyone should visit Sedona but unfortunately many people have made it home and it is becoming very commercial. McDonald's wanted to build many years ago but refused to give up their golden arches....

Mar 6, 2007 - Sedona

We had always heard that Sedona was a beautiful part of Arizona and that we should try to visit while we were out here. Today was another, typical, "perfect weather" day so we took a 2 hour drive up there. Most of what we saw on our 2 hour "jeep tour" is all captured by photo... so we'll skip any attempts at describing the various formations (mostly because we can't remember the story we were told while we were there) and let the view tell it's own story. Hope you enjoy! ...

Mar 3, 2007 - Phoenix to Sedona

This was a busy time for us but we got a lot done and had a lot of fun. We had our internet dish installed on the roof of the coach and made some new friends, the Swaims, who installed our system. The Native American Museum in Phoenix is well worth the trip. Beautiful artifacts and lots of interesting information. We went to the Renaissance Festival and had a great time. We headed north towards Sedona after our visit to Phoenix area.

Dec 21, 2006 - Sedona AZ

Sedona and the central part of Northern Arizona lived up to all expectations. We spent two weeks in the area, and other than some very cold nights we had a great time. We spent an entire day at the Grand Canyon, walked miles of trails in Sedona, and made friends with a giraffe at the Out of Africa wildlife park. Hopefully we can come back in the spring to see the trees and flowers bloom in Oak Creek Canyon.

Oct 6, 2006 - Boy are we tired

We got up late this morning, so late late I'm not even going to tell what time. It rained until about 11 AM and it's hard to get motivated when it is. But eventually we got it together and drove down to Sedona. It's an absolutely beautiful ride down Rt 89A. I hope you get some idea of the beauty in the pictures. Went went up a mountain to see a chapel built into the side of the mountain. It's huge on the outside and very impressive from a distance. But it is very small and peaceful inside. We visited a friend of AJ's, who Russ remembers...

Oct 5, 2006 - Sedona Valley, Arizona

Just prior to leaving for Albuquerque and the balloon festival a short side trip was taken from Flagstaff to the town of Sedona. It was a rather overcast day, which it always seems to be every time Flagstaff has been visited, but still a good day for a short trip to see the red rocks of the Sedona Valley. Sedona is one of those expensive tourist towns, but it is worth the drive just for the scenery and then to people watch while in town. Not much else to say about this, it was just one of those quick little side trips for something...

Jun 10, 2006 - Beautiful Sedona

Don's brother, Tom, and his wife Jan visited Sedona and their daughter Sherri and husband Kim. Tom raved about it and that is why we put that on the itinerary. If we stopped our trip right now, the drive through the dessert states would have been worth it. The pictures cannot do justice to the area. The town is surrounded by these red mountains and rocks of all shapes. and the sky is ,indeed, a deeper color blue as the background. Wow! We took an off road jeep tour for two hours with a guide. That was thrilling and interesting with a little...
