We left the camper at our campground in Flagstaff and hit the road for a short 2 hour drive up to the South Rim. Unfortunately rain, wind and a chilly day was in the forecast, but we made the best of it, and somehow we managed to get this hilarious video before the day cleared up a bit. Be sure to check it out...

|We missed the sign on the way in,|
but we did a U-ey on the way out
|Really amazing - it almost seems unreal|
|It cleared up enough for a few good photo ops|
|Sittin' on the edge|
|Sometimes clouds make for good pictures|

|Look out tower|
|Colorado River flows through. |
We definitely plan on going back
one day to river raft the area!
|Seriously, some of the pictures look like we're|
photo-shopped in. It's so surreal how huge this place is
This place is really amazing. Again, we left the camper in Flagstaff and took the short 45 minute drive down to Sedona. There was beauty around every corner - starting with the super cool Slide Rock - and we're still bummed we stupidly left our bathing suits in the camper that day. And we weren't quite brave enough to take it all off and slide down the natural rock waterslide in our undies with all the kids around.
After that, we discovered there were several Vortex's in the Sedona area. These are places where energy is very strong, and many people report having spiritual experiences when in a Vortex. So we decided to climb up to the "female" Vortex on Cathedral Rock. Holy Cow....it was a very strenuous climb, but well worth it. And Amy took some really amazing video so we could share it with you.
|Slide Rock on the way to Sedona! |
Still kicking ourselves that we didn't do it!
|So much fun watching them in the |
|Loving the pretty view|
|Yes, we climbed up to the vortex. Very strenuous hike,|
but so worth it in the end!
|View from the Vortex|
|Great shot from the top|
|Yep, T is sitting out on the edge having some quiet time|

|All smiles enjoying the Vortex|
|Just to show how steep it was - going up AND down.|
We slid down several areas and were thankful for
tennis shoes with good tread!!
