Sharon and I watched this tonight "The Big Year" just a fun movie about birding, good travel shots, a lot from the NW here. Got it from Netflix, worth watching.

We lived in Sedona. It should have been made a national park rather than a town, but since they didn't it is one of the most beautiful places in the US that you can actually live in. A number of westerns were filmed there.

This was the view from my house - just down the street. The Indians called it Eagle Rock, the white settlers named it Coffee Pot Rock. That says a lot about the difference in the two cultures.



If you were in Flag 2 days ago you would have been snowed in again. Meanwhile here in the DC area we did not have a single snowfall that left any snow on the streets. Amazing.

I remember "Coffee Pot" We got into Sedona right after a real rainfall, red sand and red mud everywhere, quite pretty when the sun came out. We came in the back way, over the mountains through the old mining areas. Quite a drive.

Prolly would be a hard place to leave, once you get off the tourist strip there's some interesting places to explore, as I'm sure you have. I believe our friends lived up at the north end, Oak Creek? I believe it's called.

Oak Creek Canyon. Where you would walk out your door, look around, and say to yourself, "I can't believe I actually live here."

I loved visiting Sedona; only got to go there twice. But I always thought that only rich folks could afford to live there.

Hah! Well it is known for being, like Scottsdale, a wealthy retirement community. The town library, one of the best I've ever seen, was funded (land, construction, and operation) by private donations. But it does have a middle and lower class population, and we were in danger of being property taxed out of existence. Then there was a referendum offered to the voters that people with a fixed low income would have their property taxes frozen. The taxes would increase, of course, for the rest of us. It passed overwhelmingly, which does indicate that people really can be altruistic and generous.
