A Whirlwind Trip



I'm back in NY after a quick but wonderful trip to Sedona, AZ. I am absolutely IN LOVE with Sedona and I'm ready to go back NOW!

We had three days in the area and we tried our best to make the most of them. We did as much hiking as we could and I have so many photos....well, I'm embarrassed to admit how many. I have some work cut out for me.

I returned to somewhere around 15 inches of snow and it was no easy feat. I was aware of what was going on weatherwise on the east coast and I was certain that my flights would be cancelled and I'd end up with a day to explore Phoenix. But, my flight from Phoenix to Philly took off on time....to the complete disbelief of everyone on the plane. My luck ran out in Philadelphia as my flight to Long Island was canceled...as was the only later flight. After standing in a line for an hour to rebook, I learned that they couldn't get me on a flight until Wednesday! I really didn't think that renting a car and driving was an intelligent option, so I continued my sojourn by train. Five hours...three train rides and a cab later...and I was back safe and sound. The same is not true for my luggage. I've got my fingers crossed on that one.

My car is still at the airport and the driveway has not been shoveled so I definately have my work for the day cut out for me. The snow is beautiful and I was not sorry to have it greet me. I'm finding the weather contrast, each breathtaking in its own way, uplifting and spiritually invigorating.

Next time you come this way, let me know- had your flight been delayed I would have dashed out to the airport to keep you company! ~~Kath~~

Planes, Trains and snow-in automobiles! Love it!!
Glad you got to enjoy Sedona. It is certainly one-of-a-kind and I know you probably had some great weather.

I knew you would have a great time. Did you see any "stars?" The film festival was the same weekend you were there. We went to Sedona on Monday. Did you go to The Chapel on the Hill? Anne

Welcome back girl! What a beautiful photo...and I DO wanna know how many you took! I bet I got you beat.

Where did you fly into that required 5 hours of driving to home? I'm curious.

I'm also glad you're back safe and sound...but even more glad that you're rejuvenated. We'll get together very soon.

Love you,
Nance
