The weather here in Flagstaff has been absolutely beautiful, with temps in the mid 70's. I have several pictures to share, including a wonderful hike yesterday at Snowbowl...more to follow!
Now for my minor rant that won't last long I promise. As many of you know, I travel a lot for business and stay in many different hotel brands. It doesn't matter how much the room costs, two things that drive me crazy are slamming doors and loud ice machines. The Radisson that we stayed in the last two days was no exception. Doors were slamming all night long, as kids ran up and down the hall to fill their metal ice buckets. I couldn't figure out what they were doing with all that ice until I discovered that they were filling their ice chests, one metal bucket at a time. Once in the night I thought I was at a casino and had won big, but it was just the clanking of the ice bucket down the hall. Needless to say, we wished we had our rig with us as it would have made for a much more restful nights.
Alright, that is the end of my rant...time to head south and to 40 degree higher temperatures I'm afraid. Please check back later for some beautiful pictures and no more rants...I promise!
So we got on the road about 9:30am and it was 73 degrees. The drive was easy, not much traffic going southbound, but lots of traffic going north. As we descended the hill, the temperature went up, 73, 80, 90, 100, 105 and we were home.:(
So here are some pictures from our very enjoyable time in Flagstaff...
