Savoring Sedona

On our way down beautiful Oak Creek Canyon towards Sedona, AZ, we stopped at Slide Rock State Park for lunch and a beautiful hike up the creek canyon.

 Being silly.

We arrived at Di and Tony’s lovely home in Oak Creek Village by mid afternoon and spent the rest of the day luxuriating in their peaceful backyard while visiting with Di’s spry 94-year old mother who I have known for nearly 40 years. Here’s a sampling of the gorgeous view they live with every day.

The next morning Di took us on the “Slim Shady” trail for some exercise and closer up views of the incredible rock formations.

 A look at how beautiful this trail is. Di isn’t too bad either.

Cathedral Rock from the trail.

The following day Al and I went dirt biking. While neither our bodies or our bikes have seen much of this type of activity, we were assured that the Bell Rock Pathway is appropriate for beginners. Well…maybe not sixty-something beginners. As far as we can figure, we made it to about two-thirds to three-quarters of the way. It was well worth the effort (and dirt).

Bell Rock, the bike path’s namesake behind Al.

Di and Tony’s generous hospitality (and great cooking!) has allowed us to get caught up on our appointments (chiro, hair, etc.) as well as giving us time to work on our taxes (ugh). We will be here a few more days before heading to our next planned stop, which is less than 20 miles away. There is that much to see and do around here, especially if you are into outdoor activities. The weather has been superb. Except for one very windy day it has been sunny and warm (65 to 75 degrees) in the afternoon and cool in the evenings. We are savoring every moment here in beautiful Sedona.
