Changes, Changes

We have had an amazing time in Arizona!  Mesa, Apache Junction, Cottonwood, and Sedona are all incredibly beautiful in the Fall.  The weather has been spectacular.  The trees are really starting to show their colors, especially in Cottonwood and Sedona.  We have had many days of hiking and biking.  I am always amazed at how many trails there are in and around the Cottonwood/Sedona area.  You could hike for days and still not even come close to hiking all the trails. We have spent lots of time with friends. 

We are starting a new "phase" of our lives.  Since one of us (not Steve) is turning 60 next year, we have decided that we want to spend more time in the Lazy Daze, traveling to many different places.  As much as we LOVE Arizona and our place in Cottonwood, AZ, we have decided that we want to be able to move around more and spend more time in our RV.  We listed our home in Cottonwood a month ago, and it is now under contract.  We will always spend time here.  We have made friends here, that we will continue to hike and backpack with.  We have definitely "fallen in love" with the Grand Canyon, and plan to spend much more time there.     

So, as a very good friend told me, "our lives are evolving"!  This is a good thing!

Arizona Time

Steve & I are spending a few weeks in Arizona.  We love to spend time in Cottonwood ~ so much to do and see!  Lots of hiking and mountain biking.  I like being able to extend summer.  It is still warm enough here to wear shorts and tank tops.  Yes, the older I get, I must confess, I love the warmer temperatures. 

The flowers are still blooming everywhere.  I think that Arizona really was pretty rainy this summer.  Even now, in October, I am amazed at how green everything is!
