A little while back, Melanie from Petersburgh Manor Farm in Upstate New York, was showing the sights she saw on her way to work. Other Shetland breeders with blogs have done the same so I thought I would show what my drive into town looks like.
This actually is a nice area of Arizona. I guess I should clarify that it's a nice area for me. I love visiting the deserts and it's just about a 17-mile drive to Sedona and the Red Rock Country off the Mogollon rim (pronounced mug-gee-own) through Oak Creek Canyon. But I like trees and don't do well in very hot weather, so I just make short trips to the desert areas. For you Zane Grey enthusiasts out there, this is smack-dab in the heart of the country he wrote about. Maybe this spring I'll take you all on a drive down through Oak Creek to Sedona. After the trees leaf out will be nice, I think. Maybe we'll even stop to look at the jewelry the Native Americans sell at the Lookout, and see where the creek in our pasture joins up with Oak Creek at the base of the Rim.
As Blogger would not let me upload the remaining photos of the journey, I'll save those for tomorrow's entry. I just hope the suspense doesn't kill anyone. Don't hold your breath - save that for when we travel to Sedona. :)
