Freshman college drop off for our youngest this week resulted in teary and weary parents. In anticipation of this emotional state, we somehow planned a three day side trip to recalibrate and embrace our new lives.
We were a tired duo when we arrived at the Enchantment Resort in Sedona, AZ.
Some red rock vortex energy, a dip in the pool and a prickly pear margarita cured that pretty quickly!
The next day, we jumped on a Pink Jeep Tour for a three hour jaunt through the ancient ruins. Shout out to our amazing guide Mike Koopsen! He took us through the gorgeous red rock canyons and walked us through the amazing 700 year-old Sinaguan Indian history.
That afternoon we lounged by the spa pool and did NOTHING.
The scenery was breathtaking. I could feel the history in the landscape and driving around, I could visualize all of the old western movies filmed here. So gorgeous.
We hiked in beautiful Boynton Canyon, did a day trip to the Grand Canyon and had a fabulous choice of places to eat in the Sedona area. Elote, Barking Frog Grille, L’Auberge and Dahl & Di Luca (a funny, old fashioned Italian place) were close by and delicious. If you wanted to stay put, the food at the resort is wonderful too.
The beauty and energy from Sedona should carry us through for at least a few days. But, I am writing this from the plane, so I have yet to walk through our newly empty house… Our dachshund better be ready for some serious attention!
