Well, I got a call Sunday morning as we were heading to the airport from my mom telling me I just may want to stay in Arizona!! The weather was turning nasty and I might not like it. And how right she was!! We left a beautiful, sunny sky in Arizona and flew into a windy stormy SNOWY Minnesota!! Not nice. And the turbulence caused by the weather made me quite motion sick, which is never fun. But here we are... back to reality!!
We did end up having a wonderful time in Sedona. If you have never been, I would definitely put it on your 'to go to' someday list!! We took a wonderful 7 mile hike on Friday. We basically walked through a canyon through trees that were in their fall color and red rock all around. It was beautiful!!
We found this neat rock overlooking the creek. I am not a big one for going too close to the edge, as you can see in the previous picture. Even that was pushing it for me!! Now Steve, he likes to live dangerously and just hangs his legs over the edge. Of course he also used to jump out of perfectly good airplanes* when he was in college, so he's a little crazy that way. I like my two feet on solid ground, thank you very much!! (*He did skydiving in college... yikes!)
There were over 11 stream crossings that we had to do on the hike. This was the easiest by far. Not that we were ever in real danger of falling in.. but our feet did get wet on occasion!
More of the beautiful red rock that Sedona is famous for!
Although I took along quite a few knitting projects, the only one I really worked on were these Fetching gloves for K. All I have left is to do the thumbs and weave in the ends. I'll be able to give them to her Friday when I see her. I made them very long (44 rows in the main section and an extra cable repeat on top to cover more of the fingers). I hope she likes them.
Sumo and Sophie were happy to have us back. Probably not quite as happy as A was to have us back, tho!! They all survived and we are getting back into our routine. More puppy pictures next post.
Until Next Time.....
