We are on our way to Arizona... And there is a whole lot of desert inbetween here and there. It got up to 111F. Gas on the California side of the state line got up to $5.19. As soon as we drove over the border into Arizona, gas dropped to $3.89. It's a good thing we had the Matrix. We were able to wait to Arizona before getting gas!
We decided to drive all the way into Sedona. We got there early evening. It was wonderfully cooler, only about 89F... And beautiful! Here is the view from our hotel balcony. I'll take more photos tomorrow in the daylight.
Tonight we are going to walk around town and checkout some hiking trails or jeep trips for tomorrow.
