Sedona, the Red Rocks (Saturday)
We didn't realize on Saturday we would be going to Sedona as we were driving up north. My husband's Grandmother, who just turned 97! was in the hospital last week and we were going to visit her. She is one of the sweetest ladies, and she has such a sharp mind! I love hearing her stories of how towns used to be in Arizona. Camp Verde, Jerome...so amazing.
She was realesed that day to a rehibilation hospital, so instead we headed to Sedona to see her. I couldn't help take pictures while my husband was driving of the gorgeous Red Rocks!

We stepped outside after dinner and caught the tail end of a Sunset!
I am glad to say Grandma is doing quite well, and will hopefully be going home soon!
Tucson, the Old Pueblo (Sunday)
The next day the girls and I drove to Tucson to spend some time with my family. This is where I grew up, and I am always amazed after being away how huge the mountains look!
The summer is an amazing time in the Southwest. It is the time of monsoons! Rain comes almost daily in Southern Arizona and brings much needed water to this dry, dry desert.
Mt. Lemmon and the Catalinas
Can you spot the rain clouds and rain over the mountains?
Arizona and New Mexico receive up to half of their annual rainfall
during the summer monsoon.
Do you have mountains where you live? What is your favorite point of interest where you live?
Thanks for taking a road trip with me!
