Ah, Flagstaff

Over the second weekend of August, I flew down to Flagstaff, AZ, to visit my long-time best friend, Meagan, and her husband and cute little eight-month-old daughter, Emaline. On Friday night, we went downtown for the monthly Arts Walk. First, we ate out at a yummy Thai restaurant. I didn’t have my camera out for that part of the evening, so I’m having to steal Meagan’s pictures from her blog.

On Sunday, Meagan and I drove down to Sedona, which is only about 40 minutes away. On our way, we stopped at a beautiful overlook where a kind man took several pictures of us. I believe his words were, “Be ready. I’m going to take 4 or 5, so you have options.” Neither of us had ever had a volunteer picture taker offer to take more than the obligatory one.

After that, we stopped at another overlook that has a path leading under the road’s bridge along a creek. I bet you can’t guess what the bridge is called?

Yes, that's its name

And only because it was so amazing, I’ve included a picture of the house that was just below us (we were at the Cathedral of the Rock, a church partially designed by Frank Lloyd Wright that also had amazing views). You can see the edge of the roof in the bottom right-hand part of the above photo. Keep in mind when looking at this house and its ground that it is in the middle of a desert.

Amazingly disgusting houseYes, that’s a telescope/observatory on the roof and a pond/lagoon and a guest house and fresh sod.

And this last photo is for Dad and anyone else who wants to play Guess the Cactus. Let the games begin!
