Arrived safely in Sedona. Twelve hours and forty five minutes from start to finish. That included time to pick up a sister (and of course quickly tour her magnificent garden) and make a couple stops for gas. We got to see the sunrise on the beginning of the trip in Nevada and a gorgeous sunset over Sedona as we arrived. I am endlessly enamored with the beauty of the wild west. I am a western girl, through and through. It was nice to be in Arizona with my aunt, someone who knows the difference between a gully washer and a monsoon. We're the real deal. To be here in the company of these women who nurture me and love me and entertain me is an honor.
