We’ve Arrived in Page, Arizona!

We’ve Arrived in Page, Arizona!

Here was the sunset on the drive out of the Grand Canyon. It was beautiful! Headed out to Page and checked into the La Quinta which was my absolute savior. The hotel is dog friendly!!!! Thank goodness….and like super dog friendly, no extra fees for a pet, you can leave the pet in the room while you go explore, and we even saw like 4 other pups in the hotel. Oh, and we got free breakfast.. Score! After my experience…

Not just any Canyon my friends. We’re talking about the Grand Canyon!

Not just any Canyon my friends. We’re talking about the Grand Canyon!

Ok car update. I noticed the tire pressure light on yesterday, after my off roading expedition and I decided I needed to take the rental to a local tire shop before leaving for the Grand Canyon. I also noticed that both front tires now had hub caps that didn’t exactly look how they did before. Uhoh!!!! Tire shop took a look. Both tires are fine, just had to get some air in the tires, phew! But the hub caps are…

Well…..we totally without a doubt bit off more than we could chew today and it was epic! So I simply wanted to get closer to the mountain range here in Flagstaff.

Flagstaff We’ve Arrived!

Happy Thanksgiving from Flagstaff!!!! The journey continues in this adorable A-frame cabin! Don’t ya just wanna get cozy up in here?!? Well you’re not the only one. American Eagle felt the same way that’s why they utilized the A-frame for a photo shoot last year. The image ended up on their shopping bags. Say what?!? Yup, that’s the A-frame and why didn’t I get invited to that adorable holiday party!?!?  Ok, I’ll walk you through the cabin cause I never…

The Haunted City of Jerome

The Haunted City of Jerome

I ain’t afraid of no ghost! Jerome… once a thriving copper mining town. Today a thriving ghost town! Jerome has also become a popular destination for artists and has a large artist community.  The town was founded in 1876 and shortly became known as the wickedest town in the west. Four fires destroyed the town and each time the city was rebuilt, most of the structures standing today are ones rebuilt from the 1894 and 1899 fires.  Old New State Motor…

Hike So Hard: Devil’s Bridge Edition

Hike So Hard: Devil’s Bridge Edition

So most of you don’t really have any idea how much of an actual beast Lemon is. I know I know,  you think I must be making this up for goodness sake she’s 5.6 lbs. Well my friends she’s crazy, just plain nuts. When we hike she starts to get angry about the pace (it’s just way too slow for her adventurous soul) So she bites at my ankles, shoes laces, and socks till the speed is more her pace….

Wow!!!  This is why I leave my home, my friends, and all the fun stuff going on to venture into the unknown …for days like this!  Let’s hike Cathedral Rock!!!

Sedona Escape

Sedona Escape

Current backyard view… I’ve been exploring Sedona for a couple days now and wanted to share some of my favorite spots with ya’ll. Trailhead Tea This came to me as a recommendation since I’m a tea fanatic. They have over 130 loose teas to offer. You can buy tea by the ounce or sample the tea right there.  I tried the Sky Mountain Blackberry black tea as shown below! It was delish! The staff was extremely helpful and very kind….

Hike So Hard: Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte Edition

Hike So Hard: Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte Edition

Howdy peeps… I’m currently exploring Arizona. Started the journey this past Wednesday and drove through the night. Lemon didn’t sleep a wink on the way which was rather frustrating! Decided our first stop would be Sedona.  Got here around 5am which has provided me with total lack of sleep and made it difficult to get rested up to explore. I think The Bubbly Mermaid finally got her groove back today!!! Yay! Girlfriend needs her beauty sleep. First thing on the…
