After spending the past spring, summer and most of the fall abroad or at sea, I returned home to make a road trip with my son Alex. We desperately needed some father-son bonding time, and we found plenty of that in our Camaro convertible as we cruised along those beautiful Arizona highways.
The weather was exceptionally gorgeous, sunny and in the 50s and 60s, and the convertible’s top was down for most of our visit, although we were bundled up and with the heat blowing full blast.
With our base camp at the Hilton in Sedona, we made day trips, including four hikes, and an afternoon (after a gorgeous drive) at the Grand Canyon. We were a happy version of Thelma & Louise (and we certainly had the horsepower to enjoy revving along in the West).
Much to my surprise, Sedona seemed to be at the height of its fall foliage. The bright leaves against the red rocks and brilliant blue skies simply took our breath away more than once during our four days in Arizona.
Check out this video that shows some of the excitement on the Broken Arrow tour. By the way, although I always carry a Canon 7D, on this trip, I purposely left the camera at home. All photos and video were shot with the iPhone.
