Back in time to Sedona....

. Smaaaarrrrt. Keeps the tourists moving into the central area of the city where money can be exchanged for whatever. The colors abound no matter where you look. The panorama shot was taken from an overlook on the side road to the airport. Not many people around this time of year, so parking and access was a snap. The Coffee Pot Rock is in a well-developed area right at the edge of a neighborhood, so a better shot wasn't possible. You get the idea though, I'm sure. We did some shopping in Cottonwood, right down Hwy 89a to the south. We were thrilled to find our first Safeway store and be able to stock up on a few items. We bought water for coffee, since the RV Park water is well-chlorinated, and Lynn's palate was offended by the taste of my coffee. Since I'm also "taste-challenger", it tasted fine to me. What do I know? Smell no evil. Taste no evil, could be my motto. We got back to camp early and had time to take a half-hour walk through a new neighborhood near the park. I won't mention that it got up to 56˚ here today. Actually had to have the screen door in place to keep the coach comfortable. They obviously put zero insulation in the coach, so it got up to 86˚ in it today. The nights get down to the mid-twenties, due to the lack of cloud cover. I hope that you'll click on the photos below and enjoy the clouds as we do. We entered our third week of travel today and the time has flown by. We are still speaking to one another and interacting politely. Is that normal? For us it is. So far. So good.
We are going to drive up to Sedona today. We visited there about five years ago and it's a great place to check. Referred to as "Red Rock Country", it's an amazing place. We only spent a couple of hours here, but it was great! The rocks haven't changed much, to be honest with you. The pictures actually tell the story better than i can. I had to restrain my camera trigger finger, in order NOT to overload you with it all. If you ever get a chance to visit the area, it's well worth your while. There are numerous hiking trails and vistas for you to enjoy. Sedona is noted for it's vortexes. These are areas where exceptional spiritual experiences can be witnessed. Whether you are into crystals, auras or Jesus, you'll find the place to be right on. The entry to town from the south, via Hwy 179 has been completely re-done since we were here. Round-abouts abound, with a few turn-offs for scenic views. The city fathers installed a bicycle path directly next to the road and no stopping or parking is allowed
