Travel: Road Trip to Sedona and Grand Canyon
Grand Canyon!Plus we have no excuse since it's in our neighboring state, and this time of the year is a great time as far as weather goes. It was already hot in the 80s, so I can only imagine in the summer how hot it can be. It's great to see the southwest, but we needed to break up the long road trip from San Diego with a stopover at Phoenix. A beautiful side trip was to the beautiful town of Sedona with its red rocks and so called energy vortex. Then the road trip continued for another couple of hours up to the southern rim of the Grand Canyon. While I love to be in nature, my tolerance for long hikes is quite minimal especially in the heat and high elevation (yes the top of the canyon is almost 7000 feet!). Like many tourists visiting this amazing natural wonder, we enjoyed the magnificent views and grand vistas from the lookout (no hikes or mule rides for me). For someone opting out of roughin' it from actually trekking around the canyon, there is the restful brunch option at the historic El Tovar hotel. Warning the plate portions are just as grand at the restaurant here! And what beautiful textiles at the gallery near by. Whether you're staying locally or goin' on a weekend adventure (a roadtrip maybe?), enjoy your weekend!
