FINAL DAY IN SEDONA

Saturday, February 25 - We took a ride to Cottonwood this morning. Before we arrived at our destination, we stopped for breakfast at Pepe's Cafe. What a great place to eat. The staff was great, and the food delicious. The price is right too. Much cheaper than eating in Sedona.

Driving along SR 89A, we came to a place called Simply Amazing, and boy was it. This place had so much stuff, it was difficulty to know where to begin. It was a combination Mexican, antiques and plain old junk. We didn't purchase anything, but enjoyed just walking around an seeing all the owner's treasures.

There was a section of free stuff. Nothing there we could use either.

Upon arriving at Old Town Cottonwood, we found out that we might be arriving too early. It was 10:00 a.m., but many of the stores were still not open. We walked the street up one side and down the other. We were able to visit a few shops. Marsha found some agates she has been looking for so all was not lost.

The highlight of our visit was the Hippie Emporium. This place was a blast from the past. Just about anything you can image from the 60's and 70's. Yes, they had bongs, beads, tie-dyed clothing, etc. We both remembered either having or using most the stuff in the place. Lots of laughs.

There is some money here in Sedona. As we drive around, we see the biggest houses. We know land is very expensive which makes these homes even more expensive.

Marsha wanted to take a few more photos of some rock formations. She was able to get pretty close to them and took some great photos.

And then the rain appeared. In the next photo, do you see Cathedral rock way out there. She was disappointed at missing this one.

Because we knew we would be doing some more sightseeing, Marsha taped the opening day of the Cleveland Indians Spring Training. We think we can say that Tribe fans are looking forward to another super season. The answer is....Yes, we won 8-2.

  4. Everything in Sedona is expensive, but the scenery is awesome.
    Cottonwood is a funky town fun to explore as well. Travel safe.

  5. We stay in Cottonwood when we are in that area. The area around Sedona is great but the town is way to busy for us.
