Yesterday was spent at “home” for most of the day. I did run into Cottonwood to talk with a man at “Custom Muffler”. I wanted to find out what they could do for the missing muffler on our coach. Well, I liked the way they talked, the look of the shop, and the price that they quoted me to get what I wanted done, so today it was taken care of. While they worked on the tail-pipe Louise and I drove to Sedona and then took the drive through the Oak Creek Canyon. Prior to heading up into the canyon, we stopped in and had a cup of coffee at Starbucks. I think the main reason for wanting to stop was to take in the stunning atmosphere of Sedona. We have had the chance to visit a lot of beautiful towns and cities, but this one takes the “Most Beautiful” trophy. We have all seen the “Red Rock” formations of Arizona in the magazines and movies, but when you see Sedona in person…everything we’ve seen before just doesn’t do the real thing (Sedona) justice. First, you are up at 4400 feet, with the air so clear and crisp that you could cut it with a knife. Second, once you are in town the “Red Rocks” are standing guard so close, you would think that the homes and stores were carved directly into them. The giant striped monoliths take on shades from bright red to pale sand, and then seem to change with each passing cloud or ray of sunshine. Now remember, we were just passing through…we will be coming back in a few days and then I can really get excited.
