Yes, we are heading south and are now in Sedona, Arizona. From here, we’ll be heading east and hope to be back home in Naples around October 22. We can’t believe the wonderful weather we’ve been blessed with since leaving on this adventure the first of July. We have experienced only a few hours of rain, one night of extreme wind and even a little snow, but overall the weather has been “made to order”.
Again, our weather while in Sedona has been wonderful – and we have once again experienced some remarkable scenery. Today Marj and I again did a little shopping, this time at a couple of antique stores, looking for treasures as Sedona souvenirs….we met the nicest people again.
Howie even did a little shopping with us this morning…..his interests were a bit different than ours, however!
This is Chapel of the Holy Cross, built right into the rocks in 1957 by native architect, Marguerite Brunswig Staude. Amazing!
Sedona is an artsy town built in the midst of the red rocks of the area. It is filled with trendy restaurants and store after store of pottery, paintings and souvenirs. It’s actually a bit overwhelming – even for hard core shoppers like us!
We had to get home from shopping to drive to Sedona during the setting of the sun as the rays really light up the red of the mountains. Absolutely beautiful!
This is a favorite photo of mine from today as the mountain illuminated behind the one in the foreground, looks like a harvest moon! (You might need to use a big imagination.)
Tomorrow we leave around 0730 for Albuquerque, New Mexico – it’s about a 6 hour drive from where we are. Then we’ll spend about 3 days in Taos followed by a full week in Santa Fe. We were scheduled to be at the annual (hot air) Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque but once again, Covid preceded us! We were so disappointed to hear it was cancelled. Maybe another year.

Did you roll over your reservations for the balloon fiesta next year? We did and will be there the entire time. From there we will also be doing Sante Fe.
No, we did not as we hope to do the East Coast next year.
