One Out of 300


I'll share just one out of the 300 pictures we took. This is my best picture ...maybe even ever I think. Could be on a calendar or something. Dear son Zach says he wants to sell our pictures to the hotel to use for publicity, I predict he'll be making $$ off of technology somehow someway soon.
The thing I was surprised by was how my eyes couldn't adjust to Sedona. Everywhere I looked everything was soooo different. The redness of the rocks. The abrupt change in the landscape, mesa, forest, desert, redrocks, boomboomboom in a row. And the sky, either so blue it looked fake (maybe because of the contrast between orange/red and blue?), or dramatic with evil black storm clouds. I was impressed by that, because I've been a lot of places in the world, and this was a place that was so much different that it kept me off balance visually the whole time I was there. Or maybe it was just the exciting aftereffects of too much coldmeds?
I'm most bummed about not getting to SMELL Sedona. That is one of my favoritest things to do when I go somewhere new, is to smell it. No chance with the damnable headcold from Hades. Especially since we had rain and hail and snow and sun and there were so many places I could tell just smelled wonderful. Pout. Guess I'll just have to go back when my schnozz is working properly, right?

Welcome back and I'm glad you made it safely. Sorry about the headcold though. I read your blog daily and really enjoy it. Post more pictures of your trip, please!

I feel the pain of those suffering from the head cold-turned chest cold. It is something evil going around and seems to last for three or four weeks. Get well soon. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L photos.
