September Road Trip – Arizona (September 23, 2017)

in Arizona, Travel Updates

The weather is still pretty great out here in Arizona… I’m up in Page now, but here’s an update of the most recent activities…

Enjoy!

Woke up bright and early in Sedona on Wednesday, September 20. Started the day off with the following hearty meals…

Egg scramble with potatoes and chicken.

Some dessert near the desert (sort of).

The Chapel of the Holy Cross.

View from just outside the entrance.

Looking down into the parking lot.

Inside.

The nicest home in Sedona? It sure does stand out…

Next up, the famous Cathedral Rock. View from the first right off the sidewalk, near the front entrance.

Getting closer…

I like the view from here and chilling on the rocks.

Back into town… Here’s “Snoopy’s Rock” (RHS)… I think…

The next morning, we were off to explore the Devil’s Bridge hiking trail.

The starting point.

Start of Devil’s Bridge Trailhead… 0.8 miles to go.

Cool rocks.

So many great views…

The epic finale… Madre and me at the center of the bridge (close enough). Don’t look down…

It’s now Friday afternoon. After making a brief stop in Williams to drop off luggage, we were off to the Grand Canyon South Rim entrance.

The Bright Angel Trail, one of two main trailheads that descends into the… abyss…

Here we go!

Didn’t see any mules this particular day… but plenty of evidence on the trail that they were indeed here…

Second tunnel.

Still haven’t gotten very far down…

It just keeps going lower and lower…

The Grand Canyon, a most majestic place…

1.5 mile Resthouse.

Time to turn around (yup, I’m weak sauce, just for rec guys! Besides, my brother had already completed the entire hike before in the past and probably wasn’t interested in attempting it again; it takes a full day roundtrip if you don’t plan on staying overnight, which is of course highly recommended)…

To make the return trip less painful (it’s all incline from here!), my brother and I distracted ourselves by talking about cryptocurrencies and ICOs…

Victory dinner in Williams.

More food.

Back to the Grand Canyon yet again on Saturday afternoon. No hiking this time around, just driving around to various lookout points.

All Along the (Desert ViewWatchtower

Inside.

Close up.

More viewing angles…

Looking off to the side…

Before we make our way out to Page… Gotta make a quick stop…

For some snacks… It was ok (will keep trying some more until I find one I really like)…

Smooth pavement, very nice.

Long drive, time for some eats…

Baked fish.

Chicken marsala.

Sneak preview of an upcoming adventure? Maybe…

The exploring never ends…

 

Until next time…

 

Fight On!
