Our Location today is Sedona, Arizona, U.S.A.
With the Lake Havasu Balloon Festival coming to an end last night we knew that we’d be on the road today. Under normal circumstances whenever we have a travel day we spend most of the night tossing and turning or we can’t stop thinking about useless things that keep us awake. Blame it on all the Fresh Air that we spent yesterday breathing because we both slept like a couple of rocks.

It was 9:20 by the time everything was secured and we were pulling out of the RV Camping Lot we had spent the last five days in. Due to the Cold, Windy and Wet Weather, we had the first few days, we never did get to look around the London Bridge Area of town even though we had driven over it numerous times. Maybe that’s a good reason for us to go back next year. By 9:30 we were heading north on Highway 95 and bidding Lake Havasu Adios.
The scenery on this trip has yet to leave us feeling bored. As we drove North the Hills and the Mountainous Landscape just kept leaving us in Awe. Even after changing our direction of travel when we turned onto I-40 Eastbound the scenery was unbelievable. The only thing we didn’t like was the Jarring Potholes we had to Avoid After being on the road for over two hours we found a Flying J to park and ate lunch at the Denny’s Restaurant.
Feeling refreshed we were back on the Interstate before 1:00. We used to have a Window Shade on the Back Window of the Truck until last summer when we had to have the window replaced. The Shade had the picture of the Red Cliffs of Sedona. When it was new and colourful people would ask permission to take Photo-Ops near it saying they wanted to go there. Since we shared the same feelings and we were close by we planned on finally seeing our dream come true and what a dream it was!
We knew we were at Higher Elevations when there was Snow scattered along the side of the Highway. Kathy had a good laugh when the Electronic Message Board over the road that read “No Stopping To Play In The Snow At Anytime”.
Kathy had researched our route using a Map and the GPS seemed to be working well today taking us to our destination of Sedona, Arizona. When it had us leave I-40 to take Highway 17 we followed its instructions. Then when it instructed us to take Highway 89A and the Roadside Sign indicated Sedona just Thirty-Five Miles away we again followed its instructions.
|That is Snow in the Mountains and along the roads.|
What all the commotion was that people didn’t expect to see a Forty-Foot RV traveling a road that would have thrilled any Motorcyclist to ride. I kept the trailer inside the lane markings and just focused getting us safely to our destination. There should have been a sign indicating Vehicle Restrictions but there wasn’t any.
When we arrived at Rancho Sedona
RV Park on Bear Wallow Lane in Sedona it felt good to be able to relax. The
site was an easy Back-In that had
all the Full Hook Up Utilities
located at just the right spots on the sites.
After Setting up we went to
town to have supper. “Word of Warning”. There are no Fast Food outlets or Mom and Pop Restaurants in Sedona
and finding a spot to park a truck is a real pain. Our Meal was Delicious and
we each have enough for another meal but it was Pricey.

It’s about time.
