May 7, 2015 - Snippets

...or more aptly...things I didn't catch in a pboto... Black as night storm clouds over the hills, with a radiant quarter rainbow arcing through them, suddenly split by jagged spears of lightening. Tiny, bright yellow birds, medium orangey-red birds, the constant coo-cooing of doves, and the sharp, piercing cries of quail. An old man who channels Sitting Bull, is famous (tv, books, interviews) for his alien contacts, and will do "readings" ($60 per hour) via email and recordings. See Blue Rose Ministry in Cornville. Two 4 ft long bull...

Apr 30, 2015 - Verde valley

We've been having a great time in the Verde Valley area...lazy, relaxing and very interesting. Until today it has been hot in the afternoon so our routine has been to go out in the morning and then nap and read in air conditioned comfort in the afternoon, followed by an evening ride. The last few days have had gorgeous storm vistas and full moon nights. The desert views are pale, delicate pastels...pale white ground; soft spring and sage greens; purple, pink, and blue mountains; topped with pastel blue skies and fluffy white clouds. Until,...

Apr 24, 2015 - Sedona, AZ and Oak Creek Canyon

It was partly cloudy with the threat of thunderstorms today, but we drove to Sedona anyway. It was gorgeous when we got there, then the clouds started getting darker and darker. And when we got to the Chapel of the Holy Cross the skies opened up and the thunder rolled. What better place to feel safe during a thunderstorm than inside this beautiful little chapel up on the hill! Most people get to see the chapel and view when the sun is shining, but we felt quite special to be able to see it from a different perspective. As we continued...

2015 Southwest Trip

Apr 15, 2015 - Sedona, AZ

4/15/15 (Wednesday) We’re off to Sedona today. Left camp at 10 am and drove thru the little town of Jerome. It’s a quaint town situated on the mountain and sits on 3 levels. We stopped at the bottom of town and took some pictures. We were then off to Cottonwood for lunch at the Red Rooster Café. I had a chicken, cranberry walnut wrap and Al had a Cuban sandwich. The food was ok, but a bit pricey. We arrived at Rancho Sedona RV Park around 2 pm. The weather is getting cooler, 65 degrees, but still sunny. We paid for 2 nights and then took a...

Apr 14, 2015 - Forest Service rd 525

It was time to leave NM and head into Az.We traveled through Christopher creek near payson and on to Sedona. We found fs rd 525 west of Sedona and camped there for 2 nights. Biked the road for 6.8 miles and saw very few people. Pink jeep tours came by with their tourists who seemed incredulous that we were camped out in the middle of nowhere 8 miles from Sedona. We went back through sedona to hike some of the trails but found all parking lots overrun with tourists so we left yuppieville and moved on!

Mar 24, 2015 - Sedona

Sunday was a wonderful day. We experienced the best fellowship and worship so far at Tucson Calvary Chapel. We were able to join in with the praise because the songs were familiar and the message about Matt. 18 was very inspiring. You can listen to it on www.calvarytucson.com . Monday we made our way to Sedona, a very nice and new city in a valley between all the red rocks. Absolutely stunning to see but our experience was somewhat lessened by the fact that it was crowded everywhere we went. We drove the road to Flagstaff, AZ, a very steep...

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 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...
