Nanette and I went to Sedona, AZ.

A truly incredible area. It is beautiful. It has
an amazing history, starting w/the ancient people
who lived at Montezuma's Well and Castle to the
miners who built Jerome to the artisans and tourists
that support Jerome, Sedona and the Verde Valley today.

Here are a few pics.

Nanette and me at a vortex site.

Montezuma's Castle 2


Picknic in the beautiful AZ. sycamores.


Jerome, a testament to "civilized" mans ingenuity, stupidity, greed, lust,
tanacity, indomitable spirit and will to suvive.



Mogollon Rim close


Sunset on the Mogollon Rim from the primo table in the Asylum Resturante
in the Jerome Grand Hotel.


....and....contrary to popular belief....this is NOT me and Nan....
it is Nan w/Pedro Gonzales at the old ghost town above Jerome.



Opal performed w/out a flaw. She motored us down the highway w/ the
curise set at 80mph, hour after hour.
She motored us up/down some rough and tumble roads to get us to the
sites of many of these pics.
A wonderful vacation.

About how far from Phoenix is this?

I definately have to get up that way when we get out there.

Oh, and renting a 'beca while we are out there :D

how about repelling down the side and looking into those homes?

sleepy questioned:

No, but you can take the path that the parks service has created.
It goes all the way down to the outlet. 1.5 million gals of water flow into
and out of the well every 24 hours.


It comes out, above ground, south of the rim of the well. It flows into Beaver creek.


Looking back up at the ruins from the bottom give better perspective.




sleepy then wondered aloud:
how about repelling down the side and looking into those homes?
Yes, I believe that would be possible.
Be aware that the parks service does require a $10,000 entry fee,
and upon your return from the ruins, requires you to
spend the next 5 years of your life at the closest federal prison.
..........so, best make the most of it while you're there.
