Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon in Arizona

Oh what a week it has been. My favourite sister has driven us around Arizona in style. We had seen some amazing places, stayed in some fabulous hotels and B&Bs, been snowed upon, lunched before magnificent views, walked and laughed and generally had a wondrous time.

The Grand Canyon can barely be described in words, and my photographs do it little justice. The Wupatki Pueblo ruins evidence a simpler life than the one we know, but one where community played an important role.
Montezuma Castle (not that the man himself was ever in the neighbourhood) shows us the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the Sinagua, and made a delightful backdrop for lunch that day!
Cathedral Rock at Sedona - ahh, if only we'd had more time in Sedona...
And many a cactus was seen. Now, I've had a thought. If I could grow one of these in my backyard, I reckon it would make a great lace blocker. What do you think?
But most importantly, we picked delightful spots for all our breaks (do you like the tablecloth?).
And wine o'clock is an important part of each day.
Aaah, Arizona, we love you.

Oh boy! What a journey! Wine o'clock and lunchtime vistas are super important, I agree.

Fantastic photos! I lived in Tucson for 18 months when I was a kid, and love Arizona to bits ... your photos brought it all back :)
