... that looked like it may be a dead end with no room to maneuver. So, feeling defeated (and maybe a little embarrassed), we got out and scouted the area. Turns out there was a cultural center nearby, and there were a few dirt parking areas, so we pulled into one, had some lunch, took in the view, and refocused.
We decided to drive on into Sedona and see what the place was like and try to decide if we wanted to stay there or find a nearby town (there's ...
... but this time I have a second story room with a balcony overlooking the 7th hole of the golf course plus the chance to see the sun set from this location, plus they gave me a pretty good offer for the next three days... the resort charge is waived, 25 dollar per night food and beverage credit, and 20 percent off any spa treatment. Another massage in order? Perhaps...
Breakfast at Palo Verde was great ...
... but very obvious. There is a trail outside the well along the Verde River where water is coming into the well and running into the river. This trail is gorgeous, very green due to the source of water and there are a couple of giant Arizona Eucalyptus trees that are amazing. Wow, nature is so beautiful. The last site we stopped to visit on our way back to the campsite is the Cliff Casino, yes I ...

Hotel is OK. Front desk clerk is over-worked, and the printer was down. TV remote batteries were dead in my friend's room (203), and they never did get them replaced. I threw out the batteries and brought the remote to the front desk in the morning so the would HAVE to replace them. The shower in my room (201) was a trickle, and the shower head was in need of some CLR! The Hotel is old, and fairly clean. At least the hotel is across the street from the 15.Quince Restaurant, which was AWESOME!
