flag and back.

24 Oct

Phew. That was quick. Quick but epic

A 10 hour drive through the mountains of the Colorado high country (Glenwood Canyon never ceases to amaze me), the red rocks of Utah (oh Moab, such a special place), and the arid deserts and Indian Reservations of northern Arizona, finally dropped us in the mountain oasis of Flagstaff…aka Tommy’s home.
Tommy played tour-guide as he took us all over Oak Creek, Sedona, and Flag, pointing out interesting geological and historical tidbits (did you know that the mounds that you drive past on your way up to Flag are actually cinder cones from an ancient volcanic eruption?!); as well as adding his own two cents about spots that have special meaning to him. Spots like the first place he camped in Flag (actually closer to Sedona), his swimming hole in Oak Creek, and the house that started it all. 
It was the perfect getaway and it was awesome to see T in his element. Thanks for a fab weekend dude! Oh, and happy 21st! I love you!
