Sedona, AZ

I had the privilege of meeting another "trach mom" this weekend. Sarah and I "met" on the tracheostomy.com message board several years ago. Sarah lives in California and she came to Phoenix for the weekend. We drove up to Sedona - which is by far the prettiest part of Arizona. We went on a six mile (roundtrip) hike through Oak Creek Canyon. Even though I've spent most my life in AZ, I've never hiked Oak Creek before - it was amazing. I've definitely found a new hiking place! Here are some pictures from our day in Sedona.

Sedona is known as "Red Rock Country"

I just thought this was fun!


Somehow, I managed to delete the only two pictures I had of me and Sarah on my camera (it was a great picture of Sarah and a lousy picture of me ... but it wasn't intentional, I swear.)  It was a fun weekend. I hope Sarah feels rested and refreshed - she has a lot on her plate and was definitely due for some respite.

Have a great week everyone!

(sorry this is a repeat for all those who follow FB)

Beautiful pictures Ann! I'm so glad she got to visit. I bet it was good for you both. That last photo looks like a roadside bar. Esp with the sign...Therapy on the rocks....It took me a minute to figure that one out.

I'm so glad you and Sarah got to meet and I hope you had a blast. And yes, we DO need to go hiking next time I am in AZ. Hopefully that will be sooner rather than later. ;-)

Thanks for the amazing weekend Ann! We collected more sand on that hike than there is on the beach! Since you "accidentally" deleted our pics together, I'll have to get mine downloaded and sent to you. ;) Thanks again for all your hospitality! It was great to meet your family!

As much I a can't imagine that heat (I know, it's a dry heat), all your photos of AZ are fabulous and make me want to get there.
