Day 24–Cathedral Rock or Bust

Jen and I walked up to Cathedral Rock today. Literally, walked up, crawled at some points and jumped at others. It is considered a “strenuous” climb in the hiking guide.

Day 23–Bridges of Sedona County–Watch out Meryl Streep!

There is a park just down the road and it connects with a larger park area that ends in a nice 1hour loop of a walk. However, in the larger park, there are two large steel bridges that go over what look like dried up river beds. I imagine in monsoon season, they may flood … Continue reading

Sedona in Sedona

Day 17 My baby doggie Sedona is sick. We went to the vet. The vet touched her belly and she screamed. It was awful. Then the whole time they were drawing blood she was screaming. It was just awful. Hopefully, it is just a parasite.  When your doggie is sick, nothing else matters. Instantly, nothing … Continue reading
