Mar 16, 2014 - trolly ride

Mar 13 In my last msg I indicated we were going on a trolly ride, as u can see from the picture it was a real trolly. After the trolly ride went for breakfast at 11am, there was 101 different omelettes, I had corned beef hash and Brian had a waffle, lol. Mar 14 Today we drove to a little town called Jerome, it's build on the side of a mountain and we climbed 600 meters in about 2.5 km on a very windy road. Very artsy!! For our last day in Sedona the plan was to go to the museum and then up to the airport. We got into town but couldn't get...

Mar 13, 2014 - Larry's Antiques & Things...

Yesterday we visited Larry's Antiques & Things in Old Cottonwood. This business fills an amazing two acres and consists of four totally full buildings. The oldest part of the main building was constructed in 1889. The store started as a gas station then became a feed store for the next 40 years and has been used as an antique store for over 20 years. Apparently Larry started in the antique business in 1991 in a house in Glendale. After 16 years, he decided to move the business to Cottonwood and it took him more than a year to move his...

Mar 12, 2014 - Happy Birthday Mom...

Today would have been Larry's Mom's (Maybel) 100th birthday so she is very much on our minds. We sure do miss her. I am so blessed that my Mom is still with us and we're looking forward to seeing her again in a couple of weeks. Today is our last day here at Dead Horse SP. We're moving back to the Phoenix area for a couple of days to get our new landing gear installed. It's worked out pretty well sitting on our 20 ton jack with a heavy duty jack stand for re-enforcement but I'll feel better when we are firmly planted on the ground again!...

Mar 10, 2014 - Old Cottonwood...

We had a good time today exploring Old Cottonwood. Shops, galleries and restaurants line Main Street and provide the backdrop for this quaint and colorful historic district. They include: 4 Wine Tasting Rooms 14 Cafes and Restaurants 10 Antique Stores 5 Galleries 3 Hotels Fandango's offers a variety of metal art, leather, pottery, jewelry and rustic furniture. I especially liked the outside decor! They've done a great job keeping the town revitalized. Of 60 or 70 storefronts along North Main, maybe one was abandoned. We passed four antique...

Mar 9, 2014 - Pretty lagoon pics...

There are three lagoons here at Dead Horse SP which means it's always a great place for a daily walk. A couple of blue herons like to hang around & I get a real kick out of watching them. They can be quite colorful, if you can get close enough to see them well. I marvel at their grace & ability to fly and wonder what a large one weighs. Larry's biggest desire in life is the ability to fly. No, not on a plane or even a hang glider. But the actual ability to flap one's arms/wings, lol, and take off under your own speed & power. In fact, he...

Mar 8, 2014 - Montezuma Well...

Today Larry & I visited Montezuma Well, a natural limestone sinkhole through which some 1,400,000 US gallons of water flow each day through two underground springs providing a lush, verdant oasis in the midst of surrounding desert grassland. The well measures in at 368 feet across and 55 feet deep and sits at an elevation of 3,618 feet. The water is highly carbonated and contains high levels of arsenic. At least five endemic species live (only) in the Well: a diatom, a springtail, a water scorpion, the amphipod and the leech — the most...

Mar 7, 2014 - A bit of pondering...

Yesterday was moving day, although we only moved to another spot here at the campground. During the last two weeks we've dumped our kitchen & shower using the 'blue boy' several times. It's not a pleasant job, although Larry has it down pretty well. We were diligent enough to ensure that the black tank made it the entire two weeks, but it was quite full when we arrived at the dump station. We're still dealing with an 'injured' landing gear, so that's a bit stressful, but all went well and we're all settled in for another week. We have an...

Mar 2, 2014 - Sedona, Az....

Today we decided to drive the approx. 20 miles over to Sedona. One of our favorite areas in Arizona. Located at the base of Oak Creek Canyon, Sedona is renowned for its stunning red buttes and monoliths, as well as its surrounding lush forests. The famous red rocks are formed by a layer of rock known as the Schnebly Hill Formation, a thick layer of red to orange-colored sandstone found only in the Sedona vicinity. Sedona began as a small, remote ranching and farming settlement in 1876 when the first permanent settler, John James Thompson,...

Feb 27, 2014 - Tuzigoot National Monument...

This morning we drove a few short miles to visit the Tuzigoot National Monument. Perched 120 feet atop a ridge high above the Verde River, Tuzigoot is the remnants of one of the largest and best-preserved of the many Sinagua pueblo ruins in the Verde Valley. The pueblo was built between 1000 and 1400 AD and consisted of two stories with 87 ground-floor rooms. This structure, along with others whose ruins have been found in the surrounding area, provided shelter for hundreds of Sinagua occupants. The name Tuzigoot is Apache for "crooked...
