So now we’re finally moving North out of the Phoenix area and we’ve landed in Sedona. We hit a little bump in the weather and it rained for a couple days but the sun is finally out. Sedona is a really beautiful area, somewhat reminiscent of Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas, with beautiful Red sandstone poking up everywhere you look. I can see why people would want to retire here – really great views, _slightly_ cooler temperatures than Phoenix and a nice downtown.

We’ve done a few hikes while we’ve been here and we even managed to climb a few routes while we’ve been here, including (of course) The Mace. The rock in the area is certainly a little loose and Joanne knocked down a big piece on one of the routes we were climbing – we’ll post some pictures at a later date!

The only thing that sucks here is the parking: it’s almost impossible to find convenient parking for an RV. The parking lots for trailheads are SMALL and crowded, even on weekdays. Because of this hassle we’re going to be cutting our stay short. It’s a bit dissapointing since we didn’t get to climb everything we wanted to and it really is a pretty area. But anyway, today we’ll be heading North into Oak Creek Canyon and Flagstaff.

  1. Zach and I are counting down the days to our trip. Three weeks from today we will be meeting up with you in Zion. Can’t wait. With the Rental car we should be able to get to wherever we need to go.
