Desert -Sedona, Az





This baby is $28,000.00



My first trip to Sedona…it was jaw dropping, natures’s art at its best. Folks are very artsy, sculptures, paintings, and jewelry every where. Very friendly. I don’t know why I expected sand, too many movies I guess. Felt like I was living in a painting. Maybe that’s why everyone was so mellowūüėä. I drove up steep, curvy roads. Looked down the deepest canyons, and saw in person for the first time a few people rock climbing!!!¬† Like in the movies!! And everywhere we ate, the food was ridiculously good. We stayed at Los Abrigados. Excellent. One of most surprising thing was the weather. Though it was in the desert we were at a 3000 foot elevation.¬† It was way cooler than I expected.¬† I loved it!!!!
