Last Tuesday, we departed Mesa for a two night photo safari to Sedona, Arizona.
We decided to go mid-week to avoid the weekend crowds and more expensive lodging rates.
Our friend Dave who lives in Chandler, AZ, emailed us a list of pet friendly lodgings in Sedona. We chose the Best Western Inn in west Sedona.
So, Tuesday afternoon before checking into the BW, we made photo stops at scenic outlooks near Village of Oak Creek, south of Sedona; Bell Rock, the Indian Cliffs and Cathedral Rocks. We also drive to the Sedona airport and made a panorama photo of the Thunder Mountain area.
Later that afternoon, when we checked in at the Best Western, my jaw dropped when we entered the outdoor terrace where our room was located. The view of the red rocks of Sedona was glorious.
On Wednesday, we made a day trip to Flagstaff via Oak Creek Canyon. We wanted to scope Flagstaff as a possible summer destination, realizing that it is too cold for us in the winter to visit with our 5th wheel.
Thursday morning, we made more photos before heading back to Mesa. It was a very rewarding
trip. When we arrived at Val Vista RV Resort, the temp had climbed to 88 degrees. What’s this about? I went online and looked at the weather conditions at the homestead, and immediately felt good about the warmer temperature in Mesa.
