I have to give United Airlines a huge THANK YOU for allowing a guest pilot
to take the controls of this cockpit.
Smooth flight for a rooky. Juliet nestled
in Ansel for this ride from Roamy.
Andrea & Babs (r) were so gracious to the celebrating couple. They showered them
Now not to leave Ansel out, this family was given their 'wings'. You can see they were beaming.
Roamy just HAD to take a peek out the window to look at this vast land that God
created. He hadn't seen it on his trip to
MD as he was inside a box. Roamy decided that the BOX is not his cup o'tea for
Roamy was so excited he jumped up to make sure the sign said we were half way to Phoenix. No, no time for skiing this trip.
Good golly! We are in Arizona!
Sometimes Roamy gets a wee bit TOO excited & this time he got into a prickly situation. Marydon saved the day.
Roamy couldn't figure out WHY these catcus were
all pointing in different directions. We explained to him that Ms. Sherry & Tony would tell him all about this soon.
Juliet was fascinated with the story of covered wagons & how the pioneers traveled across the United States in pioneer days. She made it very clear she was a modern gal.
We had such a beautiful clear gorgeous day as we all headed to Flagstaff to begin a journey of a lifetime. Harold & I had been thru AZ many times but had not had time to thoroughly do the sights.
Roamy said they were up to lots of traveling, so off we are on our 50th
The countryside is breathtaking. This rain storm was in sheets ... quite spectacular.
Every which way you look there is an
awesome view of the mountains & landscape.
I heard Harold say 'PINK SATURDAY' ... welllll, not quite.
Sedona is a lovely city, breathtaking surrounded by awesome mountains of brilliant colors. It will suck your breath away.
Rather touristy, but who cared ... God's
beauty is magnificent!
The marbleized ribbons of color that thread through these spectacular hills, are far more brilliant than the picture shows.
It was a very emotional time for me to see
God's brilliant artwork He creates on this earth.
Roamy & Juliet so enjoyed this view of the river near this site.
This link will tell you some wonderful rich history of the area.
T.C. Schnebly named this town after his wife, Sedona, in 1902.
The terrain of Arizona is like a rolling slide show, it changes around every bend in the road.
We explained to Roamy & Juliet that this was only the beginning of an exciting trip.
Desert one minute, lush green forests of juniper, pine & birch, the next ... crisp bright blue skies filled with billowing puffy clouds of white.
Tomorrow the Grand Canyon & more
