So on Saturday after we had only slept a few hours we got up had breakfast thanks to my mom and once again we were on the road, this time the destination was the small but beautiful town of Sedona, Arizona. The heat was already in full blast and it was nice to know that at least in Sedona it would be a little bit cooler than in Phoenix. After gassing up the car we jumped on I-17 and started hour two hour drive.

On our way to Sedona.

Again, it was an uneventful drive. We stopped at the visitors center where we took a few pictures, it is here that you start seeing the beauty of Sedona, with the red rock mountains and all the vegetation which as you know we don't have in Phoenix.

The sign said "don't touch" but I think she was touching my butt.

We were having fun taking pictures and doing those ever so necessary "my space" shots when this nice gentleman came over and offered to take our picture. I gave him the camera and happily posed for it, it is hard not to be happy when Abby is around so posing comes out naturally.

At the visitors center in Sedona, Arizona.

We got our room and were surprised at how nice the whole set up was. Right outside our door was a very nice patio and the swimming pool. And right outside the door all the shops and galleries just waiting for us to visit them.

Abby got comfortable and was looking pretty too.

Ummm, we were too comfortable and the weather was beautiful. Who wants to go shopping when you have this?

Wow, that's a big horse.

The Dance!

Awww, these two must really good friends.

Wow! Abby looking sexy here.

Howdy folks, from the Cowboy Corral.

We so were in awe!

Sedona's main attraction is its stunning array of red sandstone formations, the Red Rocks of Sedona. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The Red Rocks form a breathtaking backdrop for everything from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails.

Sedona is named after Sedona Arabelle Miller Schnebly (1877–1950), the wife of the city's first postmaster, who was celebrated for her hospitality and industriousness.

Le gustan los altos y los chaparritos y hasta este que parece marciano con sombrero.

All in all we had a wonderful day, we got hungry and decided for Mexican food, we got to the restaurant late but it was still open and they served us. Not only did they serve us but they really took care of us, the margaritas they prepared for us were to die for and even the cook came out. They get a kick when we talk to them in our native language and that gives us points. Needless to say we were the last ones to leave but not before getting good byes from several of the employees. Go figure!

Now it's time to rest as tomorrow we will explore Sedona a little bit more before we head towards Jerome, Arizona.

But that folks is another story.

I'm guessing that this the post you want to submit to ABC Wednesday; this is why we like the specific link. I'll correct that.
