Since our plane wasn’t leaving until midnight on Tuesday night, Eric and I rented a car and spent all day Tuesday in Sedona, Arizona. It is a beautiful place. We were in awe! Eric and I were able to eat at a delicious Mexican restaurant (filled with Auburn fans 🙂 ) and hike Cathedral Rock.
The restaurant was in a shopping area called Tlaquepaque. Beautiful architecture and fun shops!
After our late lunch, we headed to Cathedral Rock. I was a little intimidated on the way up.
We felt like “the old days” when we used to work at a ranch in Northern California. We hiked up to the middle of the two smaller peaks. All along the way, we passed hikers who wished us well and congratulated us on a good game (to which eric always commented that he had a lot to do with the win). The views were amazing on the way up, but the top was worth the effort. You could see all the way around the city. It was one of my favorite things we’ve been able to do.
What a sweet blessing that we were able to make our trip have two once-in-a-lifetime experiences: the championship and Sedona. We are still in awe 🙂
