Leaving the Grand Canyon, we drove down to Sedona to visit our friends Chris and Darrell Cozen. We switched from looking at rock formations from above to looking at them from below.
The plants were well labeled and we were glad to finally find out that this plant is ocotillo.
Driving up toward Jerome, an old mining town, we were looking for Haunted Hamburger for lunch. Good burgers, good shopping (many art galleries), and lots of picturesque buildings, some just shells of their former selves.
I really loved the building above with the open sign next to the air-conditioned shell. (The picture is processed with Instagram…I haven’t mentioned in awhile that I’m @loisreynoldsmead …if you follow me, I will follow you.)
Continuing the loop we went to Montezuma Castle. The Arizona Sycamore was abundant throughout the grounds of this historic site. Massive white trunks with now yellow leaves. These trees had limbs that spread so far that I couldn’t get a picture that held the whole thing.
