Well, the wife and I finally got away on Monday after a two-day delay due to a freak snowstorm that hit Northern Arizona last Friday. After the weird weather, we decided to see Sedona for 3-4 days before heading out to Mormon Lake to attend the 2015 Overland Expo. It’s strange. But we’ve lived in Arizona for 11 years and never spent any quality time in Sedona, one of Arizona’s top tourist attractions.
Since we’ve been here in Sedona, we’ve driven several trails and scenic drives, visited some Indian ruins, enjoyed some terrific restaurants, and taken loads of pics. During the nights, we boondocked twice in the Coconino National Forest and stayed in a USFS campground once. The weather has been terrific, in the 70s, nearly perfect. I’ll provide a more detailed trip report later, but I wanted to post a few pics to show everyone what we’ve been up to.
