Caravanning Sedona

We spent about a week camping out near Sedona with varying groups of people. Lots of hiking about; campfires with music, smores, and weeners (primarily vegetarian); and Sky King buzzing around with his drone ensued.

Boy Girl Beauty World

One thing to note: Two of the peeps we were travelling with (Marisa & Dylan) are wedding photographers who go by Boy Girl Beauty World and half the pictures on this post are theirs. I've placed their icon (that links to their website) inside the corner of the photos they took.

After Sedona we headed west and checked out the towns of Cottonwood and Jerome. Jerome reminded me a lot of Deadwood back home in the Black Hills of South Dakota. It is a small little mining town built in the side of a mountain full of saloons, art, and trinkets. We also stopped and checked out Prescott and decided to make a stop on the way out to further explore.

The next day (Valentine's Day) Michelle had a show at Winery 101 back in Peoria. She learned a few new love songs for the show and enjoyed herself a glass of the #1 rated Merlot in Arizona.
