Sedona Weekend

A friend & I drove to Sedona AZ, this past weekend. It was a great trip! The weather was perfect, sunny but cool. My pics aren't the greatest, but you'll get the idea! These first ones I took from the patio in front of our hotel room! The view was just awesome. It was in West Sedona, just a short drive from all the shopping & galleries in Sedona. We spent as much time as possible in the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village which is a kind of shopping center of galleries, restaurants, and lovely little shops. We also shopped a bit on the main road through Sedona.

These next 3 pics I took from the Verde Canyon Railroad. We took the 4-hour train ride and it was really fun. The train travels through the beautiful No. AZ back country along the Verde River. It is an awesome journey with stunning scenery, some of the wildflowers and cactus were blooming. Eagles nest in the canyon and we saw one of their abandoned nests but I couldn't spot this year's nesting place. We did see 2 of the eagles soaring above the cliffs, and a Great Blue Heron in the river.

We want to go back!

Love your pictures!! My husband & I were in Sedona this weekend, as well. He was the keyboard artist at Saturday night's wedding at the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village and I was with sister stitchers happily stitching away and watching a magnificent sunset. Stunningly beautiful up there, isn't it!!!

I envy your trip! I'll bet you got some mind images to adapt to your needlwork. The mention of Tlaquepaque sent me to my filing cabinet for some angels I painted from T. ceramics in Mexico. I had forgotten about them.
