I got home late last night. I almost don't know where to begin to tell you about my trip. We had a very full week and had a wonderful time.
I guess I'll just start at the beginning. I left early in the morning to go to Minnesota to meet my BFF. We got to Arizona without a problem in the early afternoon.
Here are the "bugs" in the floor of the airport.
We took the car rental shuttle over to rent a car. Why do I always get the "similar" car and not the one they show a picture of on their website?? I wanted a car like the one I drive but we got a different one. BFF drives a lot for her work so she was the best one to be behind the wheel anyway. Our goal today is to get to Cottonwood, Arizona. We had the help of a GPS (thank goodness!).
One of our guilty pleasures is a Pizza Hut personal pan pizza. So we looked for one along our way. We saw a sign for one but had a hard time locating it in the strip mall. We stopped to ask several people where it was. The reply we got was the same, " I don't know. We're not from here". I don't think anyone is really from Arizona, they've all come just lately. We finally found it. I think the actual restaurants have better pizza than the just take-out Pizza Huts. But I've blown my diet right off the bat.
On the trip to Cottonwood, the scenery is amazing. Mountains, rocks, cacti, clear skies. I had no idea that much of Arizona is at a high elevation. The car struggled at times because of the elevation. We saw a great sunset.
We wanted to go to a quilt shop in the area but by the time we got there it was getting late and dark. We couldn't find it anyway. We only had to do a few u-turns today. Travelling is exhausting. We were really tired. We're going shopping in Sedona tomorrow!
