Road Trip: pics from June 22
Road leading to Sedona AZ. We’ve heard so many great things from friends who have raved about Sedona, so we had to make a 45 minute drive south from Flagstaff to check it out for ourselves.
Were they wrong? They were definitely correct in all of their praises.
Outstanding views on various stops on the way into town.
Love the layers of rock and the odd-shaped peaks. Some T shirts in town were apparently dyed with the red dirt giving them a dark rust color.
Didn’t find out anything about this bridge, but it made a nice picture.
Stayed in the town of Sedona for about an HOUR & A HALF. Strolled through a few shops, had a fruit smoothie and sat outside (in the heat). Then back north to pick up I-40 East at Flagstaff. This is our third trip to Flagstaff in 2 days.
About one hour east of Flagstaff is the town of Winslow AZ on the historic Route 66. Not much to see as you approach town. One lens of my (Dorothy) glasses kept falling out. Passed by Vision Care and went in to see if they could tighten the tiny screw. Very kind lady fixed it right up.
Closer to the famous corner in Winslow Arizona made famous by the song “Take it Easy” recorded by the Eagles.
Probably served a good meal in its day. Maybe someone will renovate it to fit into most of the rest of the town.
Across the street from the “corner” is another old building which now houses a neat shop. Lots of memorabilia here. Bought a nice little book on the Grand Canyon (probably something we should have read BEFORE we went to the Grand Canyon).
In that iconic song “Take it Easy” recorded by the Eagles there is a line attributed to a hitchhiker who is standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona who sings “…when a girl, my lord, in a flat bed Ford slows down to take a look at me…”. A bronze statue stands near a lamp post, securing an acoustic guitar between his right hand and the shoe of his right foot. The red flat bed Ford is just behind the coupe. Too bad about the construction flags. Pretty neat.
I know there are a lot of roadside scenery pictures, but it just amazes both of us at the variety. It changes so quickly and you think you just can’t let this view go by without taking a picture!
This picture was taken just one hour after the previous picture. Stayed in Albuquerque NM for the night.
