We're still hanging out in Arizona, feeling the heat. However, we had a very nice break when our friends Vin and Connie invited us to join them in Sedona for a long weekend. We've been to Sedona and the surrounding area a couple of times so we were more than happy to join them. Sedona is a gorgeous area surrounded by red rock formations. There are a variety of hiking trails and we were able to take a couple of very scenic hikes. Although it was a bit cooler than down here in Fountain Hills it was still pretty warm during the day - no complaints though.
Sedona is also known for its mystical healing powers. There are several vortexes around Sedona. These vortexes are thought to be 'swirling centers of energy that are conducive to healing, meditation and self-exploration. These are places where the earth seems especially alive with energy. Many people feel inspired, recharged or uplifted after visiting a vortex'. People come from all over the world to experience them.
Sedona also has some very nice galleries, restaurants and shopping. All in all, a pretty nice place for a getaway.
We may actually be able to leave here in another week or so. Brian's done with his physical therapy appointments but will still be doing PT on his own. He's worked hard to get his rotator cuff and shoulder back in shape and I give him a lot of credit for that. His physical therapist even told him that he made exceptional progress. Go Brian!
We're having a few maintenance things being done to the Bus, then we should be able to load it up and take off. We plan to head to the mountains of Colorado and experience some cooler temperatures and do some hiking. After that we're not sure where we'll go, but it will definitely be wonderful to be back on the road.
