Outta Town

HS felt bad that he had to work while I was visiting.  I didn't mind.  I had time on my own to relax and read.  He did manage to take Friday off and we headed out of town for the weekend!

We packed the truck and the doggie up and headed north to Sedona.  It was SO worth it!  Sedona was BEAUTIFUL!  and the trip was relaxing!  And I was so happy that we had a chance to spend time together!

Heading out of town

Sedona is said to be a place with magical healing powers, their Vortex's.  A vortex is a site where the engery of an area is concentrated.  Because Sedona as a whole is known to be a spiritual power spot, a vortex site in Sedona is a place where one can feel Sedona's spiritual energy most strongly.


Christie was ready to go.  She loves a ride in the truck.

As we drove out of Phoenix, the terrain changed from forests of cactus to scrub plants to red rock canyons.


Cactus are protected in AZ.  Once they have their "arms"
they over over 100 years old.


Less cactus and more green.


This is somewhere near Montezuma Castle.

Smile!


Our first glimpse of Red Rock Country.

Over the crest of each hill, the views were better and better!  I was juggling 2 cameras and our phones for pictures.  As we left the highway for Route 179, an all American Road, the views were even better. I definitely fell in love with AZ on the ride.



Coming into Sedona.  Bell Rock directly in front of us.
In Sedona (and maybe in all of AZ) they name everything, the streets, the rocks, EVERYTHING.  Even the rocks on the rocks!


The view from the restauant where we had dinner.
The Rock in the center is named Snoopy Rock.
It looks like Snoopy lying on his dog house.  Maybe...
We rolled into town, checked into a hotel and relaxed for a few minutes.  Then we headed into town for dinner.  They made a great Rita!  After dinner we wandered a little bit, then grabbed a bottle of wine and sat out on the balacony with the dog.  Lots of Relaxing!  Just what the therapists ordered!
