I’ve hiked so many places in and around Sedona. A helicopter ride gave me a different perspective of the area. I like what I saw, of course. But I wouldn’t pay the expensive tour twice. This is a once-in-a-life-time experience. 🙂

I don’t know how many times I’ve been to this park now. Since it’s only two and a half hours away from Sedona, I’ve taken advantage of its close proximity. No matter how many times I’ve seen it, the unique petrified wood still amazes me very time.
Coal Mine Canyon is located about 15 miles east of Tuba City in northeastern Arizona. It’s remote and little-visited. One can drive to the rim of the canyon, but there is no official trail going down except an unofficial path which is very steep and crumbly. But the hike (more like slide) is well worth the trouble if you can overcome the fear. I’m glad that Libby and her husband were there; I wouldn’t go down without them. We were the only ones among the multi-colored and strangely-formed sandstones.
The Desert Botanical Garden is located in Phoenix, central Arizona. Founded by the Arizona Cactus and Native Flora Society in 1937, the garden has more than 21,000 plants. It’s a great time to visit before it gets too hot.
As my friend Libby wished for, we had a white Christmas in Sedona.
White snow on the red rock is beautiful—the good news.
The bad news is—she was snowed in for four days, and I couldn’t go to her house for Christmas dinner even though she’d invited me. The bridge to her community was flooded by creek water first and then by snow.
Well, my friend, think carefully before you wish for something. 🙂
