You dream and hope, listen to the stories of others, and then one day it’s your turn! For a real winter vacation, that is. I’m a fan of King Solomon, whose words lay bare the layers of life we each are granted a portion of, “To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.”(biblical book of Ecclesiastes) The mountains of Sedona, AZ provide the perfect natural beauty and energy to restore the soul of this winter-weary Minnesota country girl who often carries on about the gifts of living in the countryside. With that said, we all know there’s a sweet relief to getting back home. Even sweeter when you travel down your dark little gravel road, turn the truck onto your freshly plowed driveway, see that all is well and notice a new feeling inside of yourself. It’s a happy, little bit tired, heart-full of vacation experiences, sights and memories feeling. Where to start? How about simply. . . .with the splendor of those beautiful red mountains, everywhere you look, around that gorgeous Sedona area.
