So here goes.
We left Tucson yesterday morning, but not before this:
Molly and Rocky are renting their house from the amazing Neko Case. Even though she now lives in Vermont, her wicked car is still parked in their driveway. The very car that she perched on for the album cover of 2009's Middle Cyclone. I had to recreate the magic. What do you think?
In Phoenix, we stuffed our faces at this incredible, innovative Mexican restaurant called Cafe Barrio. Then we pulled over to say goodbye to the Saguaros, as we heard we wouldn't be seeing them after Phoenix.
We stopped outside of Sedona at Montezuma Castle, which was really cool. We totally dorked out over this place.
|My new favorite picture of Tessa and me. Love that she's showing her teefers.|
After Montezuma Castle, we had about 20 miles left before Sedona. I started thinking, but not saying out loud, that I wasn't as impressed with the scenery as everyone said I would be. I started to feel a little disappointed. And then we rounded a corner and all of a sudden these amazing, jagged, glowing red rocks appeared. Sedona is just as magical as everyone said. Terrifically beautiful, in a way that pictures can't do justice.
