Day Two: Sedona, AZ

I took over 200 pictures, it's so hard to limit myself to four per day, but here are the winners from day 2:

On Saturday we had the day off. My only work obligation was to arrive at a party back at the Boulders at 7pm. We figured that this was plenty of time to take the 2-hour ride up to Sedona to see the legendary red rocks.

This was Jerm's favorite rock formation, I'm not sure why?? :-)

The distressed look on my husband's face had little to do with the fact that he was riding through the mountains on a fellow named "Duke" and everything to do with the woman from NYC who talked incessantly throughout the 45 minute bus ride to the ranch, the 1 hour horseback adventure, and the 45 minute bus ride back to downtown Sedona. She sat directly behind him on all accounts -talking and talking, and talking. Notice that she is in full riding gear (English, not Western - we learned a lot that trip, but the biggest lesson of all, was not to position ourselves next to 65 year old NYers).

No, it's not a cloud - apparently there are no clouds in AZ, but the moon does seem to make an early appearance.

Purple mountains! Even the ride back to Scottsdale was beautiful - this was just anytown, AZ - it seemed like the entire 2-hour ride to and from Sedona was littered with beautiful mountain views.

We really liked Sedonna - I think that rock formation is the bell - did you see the snoopy one? I have no idea what you mean about the New Yoorka woman! 90 mph talkin'? (I think the horse has earplugs.) Where's Jerm's helmet?
