Mar 17, 2015 - Pictures from Sedona, Arizona

We spent our day in the galleries of Sedona, Arizona, one of our favs. A couple of years ago, we put a bronze piece back in the gallery on consignment, but today we reclaimed it and it looks fabulous in our motorhome. Great to have it back home. The rest of the photos are of things that we enjoyed and will share them with you. The second photo is the view from our spot at the Elks Lodge. Pretty neat place with spectacular scenery. This is the high season for Sedona, so the shops are busy. Regardless, we love it here every time we return....

Jan 30, 2015 - Jerome State Historic Park-Copper Mine Museum

Today we drove to the town of Jerome Az to explore the area. The town was founded in the late 1800"s. It is located on Cleopatra hill overlooking the Verde Valley. Is was a mining town-Copper,gold and silver.In it's prime there were 10,000 people but as the ore deposits became exhausted, the mines closed and population dropped to less then 100. Today there are about 450 residents. They rely mostly on tourism now. We toured Jerome State Park and the Douglas Mansion. He owned one of the mines and the house is now a museum dedicated to mining...

Jan 10, 2015 - Sightseeing

After the comp breakfast we headed to Winslow Az. We spent a couple of hours there. Besides standing on the corner and "taking it easy" we walked the historical section of town. We also toured the La Posada hotel. One of the last Santa fe railway hotels still open and it is awesome. We then went to the Meteor crater that isn't that far from Winslow. We could take a self guided tour and then spent time in the museum and watched a film. We then headed to check out Sedona. Beautiful drive from flagstaff, major mountains and winding roads, it...

Dec 7, 2014 - Spectacular Sedona

Another beautiful drive north. I've taken so many pictures of this part of Arizona that they become redundant but I never get tired of the spectacular scenery - red rock country. After checking in I drove to the grocery store and picked up a few breakfast items. Don't plan on eating any other meals in the condo - I'm on vacation . ( aren't I always on vacation?) Watched Monday Night Football and relaxed this evening. Hope to hear from Jane and Jim tomorrow . They are meeting me here for a few days. Weather is supposed to be terrific until...

Sep 19, 2014 - Sedona

We could only get a spot in the RV Park for one night so we headed to some public parking that I was told had spots for tour buses and RV's. There were only 6 spots but when we got there it was wide open and the best part...it's free! There are two things about Sedona, the views and the shopping. The shopping is all along one major street and there must be 4-5 tour companies to show you the views. The day before we saw one of the touring vehicles drop people off at the RV park. It had straps on the inside of the roll bars and the people...

Sep 18, 2014 - Albuquerque to Sedona

Wouldn't you know it, the day we leave Albuquerque is sunny and clear. We had half a mind to head to the Sandia Sky Tram but by then we were over it. So, off we headed out of town to Sedona. The drive started out pretty flat with not much to see. We were on I40 that is a pretty large major highway. It cuts through several Indian Resverations (Canoncito, Laguna, Acoma Pueblo) and as we made our way west you notice the terrian change. We made two stops, one in Grants for supplies (the local walmart) and in Gallup New Mexico to hit the many...

Sep 16, 2014 - Sedona AZ

We were warned not to take the RV down State Road 89a out of Flagstaff to Sedona because one section has many s-curves. The alternate route is south on I-17 then north on Highway 179 through Oak Creek. It was fine until we got to Sedona. There the road is a series of round-abouts. They are not easily negotiated with a 37-foot 5th wheel either. But we made it to the Elks' Lodge without too much heart failure. Sedona is drop-dead gorgeous. The red rock formations are magnificent. And Sedona has vortexes, one just behind the Elks' Lodge. And...

Sep 11, 2014 - Sedona, AZ

We drove down to Sedona and our first stop was at 101 Omelette for some great Bloody Mary and omelettes. We sat on the patio and it was very nice. We then took a drive up to the airport lookout for a picture moment then drove down a ways on 89A. We then took a drive into town and stopped to do some shopping. This may surprise a few but Cathy and I each found a trinket. We then drove back up to Flagstaff, did our grocery shopping and returned to the RV park for happy hour and a great dinner of CA salmon.
