Monday, August 3, 1992
We arise when we wake up and walk to a cafe for breakfast. First breakfast out in a week, and we are really full when we leave and skip lunch today. We head for an excursion trip to Sedona. It's 28 miles away and I feel we must see it. I don't know why. It's a beautiful drive through a canyon with streams and pine trees. Suddenly the road opens up to a valley of shops and really expensive homes. The surrounding red mountains and formations are beautiful. There's a chapel built right into a mountain. We take lots of pictures. After a yogurt we head back to Flagstaff and on to Laughlin, Nevada.
We have a lovely room and dinner of lobster and prime rib. We gamble some and watch a lounge show.
I call Mom to say we're coming by tomorrow.
It's less than 200 miles from Flagstaff to Laughlin, so I'm glad they had some extra time to take a side trip to Sedona. My family went there for the first and only time 3 years ago after a visit with my Dad near Parker, AZ. The red rock scenery truly is spectacular and the drive along the river between Flagstaff and Sedona is beautiful.
Even though they ate dinner out every night, it sounds like they did have breakfast in the condo during their stay there.
