Sedona Motorcycle Trip

Biker chick complete with chaps!

On the Mogollon Rim

The Red Rocks of Beautiful Sedona!
Last Wed and Thursday Chris and I took a motorcycle
ride to Sedona. We started with lunch in Heber
(you get hungry fast :)) and then through Strawberry
and Pine to Camp Verde, Cottonwood and finally
Sedona. We stayed at the Poco Diabo Resort that
I snagged on Priceline for a mere $77! We had a
two person jacuzzi in the room! Perfect after 305
miles on the bike. We ate at a great Mexican
restaurant that night and then went to the late
movie. I nearly froze to death on the way home
from the movie. The next morning after a nice
walk, we took a swim, more hot tub and then
off for the day. We had a lovely lunch at the
Wildflower Bread place in Sedona and then checked
out a few shops for a hat for Chris. We are both
not too into shopping so it didn't last long. After
some expensive chocolate we hit the road. We
went back through Oak Creek Canyon into
Flagstaff. This is old stomping grounds for us as
we frequently went on this road to Sedona while
we were in college at NAU. This was the days
when there was virtually nothing in Sedona and all
of the outdoor water spots were free! We then
went from Flagstaff to Happy Jack, back through
Strawberry and Pine into Payson and home. All in
all we rode 690 miles in two days! We are prepping
for our ride to Ouray Colorado in three weeks!
We downloaded an audiobook by one of my favorite
authors onto the ipod, had a splitter and listened
away! Beautiful scenery, and special time with
my sweetheart - what could be better?
