Our last week of exploring the extraordinary Sedona environs was just as dazzling and enjoyable as the first three weeks. The days were spent either walking or running the local roads on our morning workouts, hiking through the red rocks and canyons, or relaxing in our Sedona home while watching a relatively rare snow fall.
We got a pleasant surprise last Saturday when we came across an entire family of Javelina wandering around our neighborhood. The Javelina are not directly related to pigs, but they sure resemble them!
Saturday night we hiked out to Snoopy Rock to watch the sunset…..
and our final hike was the Boynton Canyon Trail last Wednesday.
We arrived at our final stop, the Westin Mission Hills Resort in Rancho Mirage, CA, on Thursday, for a couple of days of pampering in anticipation of our re-entry to life in one place.
So after a couple of days of sleeping in, working out, enjoying the local cuisine, a mani-pedi for Robin, and a day at the pool……we are now ready to park the Old Home and put our suitcases and bins away.
Our next adventure will be adjusting to grandparenthood and training a new puppy (or two). Should be some exciting times ahead!
Robin wants to do one more “stats” type blog post once we are settled in, recover from our root canals, and have a chance to review the trip…..so stay tuned.
