Veiw from the Holy Cross Church


After a relaxing morning, an invigorating afternoon and a quiet
evening yesterday, we're about to leave the Phoenix metro for Sedona.

We woke up at the crack of 6:45, took a quick walk around the
campground before the sun came up. Now we just need to brush the sand
out of our bedsheets, pack up the awning and get
underway....eventually; checkout isn't till noon.

Architecture and food

A quiet morning yesterday, we got moving around 11, took Missy to a
dog park in Chandler, got her soaked down and ran her around a bit
before leaving her with a friendly couple who also owns a T@b trailer.

We got lunch at Joe's Farm Grill, which we discovered thanks to our
fascination with the Food Network's Diners Drive-Ins and Dives. (I
actually made a DDD spreadsheet to organize where Guy stopped the
first three seasons, so if we're in need of somewhere to eat I can
look it up: )

We also took a tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West, the winter
villa of the famous architect. Apart from the heat, we had a fun time.

Missy enjoyed her day, and we ended the evening hanging out with Lori,
Cindy, Wiley, and Madison before coming back to basecamp to be
seranaded by coyotesong before bed.

Missy on her back seat

Missy, queen of the back seat. For some reason, long car trips make her pant like crazy: just imagine four to six hours like this, and you have a good idea of the past three days.

Passing Through

We considered a night in Palm Springs to break up the trip, but we
spent two weeks in Palm Springs just a few years ago. We decided
Arizona might be more interesting. So we're making a direct drive to
Phoenix, maybe another trip we'll pay a visit to the little oasis of
Palm Springs.
