Today was a day of weather surprises. In Williams there were still piles of snow from previous snowfalls. We traveled east to Flagstaff and then south to Sedona through another canyon. Sedona was sunny and very pleasant. Sedona began as an artist colony but is now a tourist destination. Magnificent views and interesting architecture. Back up the canyon to Flagstaff and east to New Mexico. Wind is very strong - enough to blow off eyeglasses. Apparently the wind has been like this for about 3 weeks. At one point the freeway speed was down to 20 mph from 75 mph because of a sandstorm. Tomorrow we head for Albuquerque. Seems the temperature may be dropping but the wind will continue.
