Mystery Road Trip

October 13, 2009

Still no clue where we’re going:

Anniversary 018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the I-17, which runs north-south through the state, we’d already passed the obvious choices…maybe the little-known wonderland of Badger Springs?

But then we turned off onto a dirt road:

And I spied some incredible views of red rocks:

And Herbie finally divulged that we were descending into Sedona (WOOO!) on the very roller-coastery Schnebly Hill Road, a 100-year-old  wagon trail.  I love roller coasters.

Anniversary 037

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anniversary 039

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And after woo-hoo-ing our way down the mountain (symbolizing, perhaps, the rocky yet always exciting adventure that is marriage?), we ended up at our hotel in uptown Sedona, with a incredible view of the mountains and the bustling town.

Anniversary 047

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anniversary 049

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Happy anniversary, Mama and Herbie!”  “Awww, thanks, Creepy Animatronic Cowboy Sheriff!”
