On The Road To Sedona

Morning Peeps~I hope you are enjoying some nice weather; last night the snow returned and is continuing to fall this morning. It is very wet, something we call "Sierra Sludge" because it reminds us of California snow. Being so wet makes it so much harder to shovel; I will say that the roads are clear, due to the warmth of the pavement. Here is my last bunch of photos from our warm winter get away.

This Cliff Dwelling is called Montezuma's Castle; I visited it about 15 yrs ago and I remembered it being much bigger than it really is. That may be in part because I've been to Mesa Verde and everything else is dwarfed compared to it.

The sky was overcast and so these pics aren't as vibrant as they would have been on a hot, sunny day-hope you enjoy them anyway.

After having a wonderful lunch at a local shopping center, we strolled through the gardens. Here are a few pictures of sculptures we wish we could have brought home.

I hope you've enjoyed out get away; seeing these photos makes me want to explore some more of Az. To all my blogger buddies who live there, feel free to share the names of more treasures so that next visit we'll have lots of adventures.
Joy To You!

  2. oooh, I love those red rocks. When I flew last (from Portland to St. Louis), we flew over a large red rock area ... I have no idea where it was, but it made me want to visit a red rock area some day. And your pictures have reminded me how much I want to do that.

  4. Oh Noreen I'm so glad you enjoyed Sedona. It's a beautiful place albeit a bit New Age. But I love the red rocks. And the wind sculptures .. we used to have two in our backyard of our previous home. I loved them and we bought them in a shop at Tlaquepaque. Anyway ...next time I hope we get to meet in person.

    Blessings and love,
    Debbie

  7. Oh, I bet Blueberry's Mom knows a lot about all those fun places!! What amazing photos...you should visit there again!! Domeek's only been to Arizona once and let's just say that that incredibly long car ride will forever stop her from doing it again! ;-) Hehe, Sierra Sludge is the correct term for most of the stuff that we get in NoCal! Well, I hope that your snow soon turns into Spring...I'll look into sending you a bit of our sun! Have a great Wednesday!

  8. Beautiful photos Noreen, we have never been to that part of the country but it looks beautiful. Thought the bird sculpture was quite unique. Thanks for sharing with us
