Birthday Surprise – Day 3 (part 3)

(you’re probably thinking this is never going to end, huh?)

If you’re looking for the winner of the book drawing, go here.

So I think I still have too much to cover in one post, so I’ll just do what I can and finish the rest another day.

Sunday after Walnut Canyon we decided to visit the Arboretum at Flagstaff, which we had never heard of before. Apparently it’s been around since the 80’s, but that’s about the same time that we moved to So Cal, so explains why we weren’t familiar with it.

Anyway, it was a lovely place for a stroll as you can see from the photos, but was a bit frustrating because the map that they gave us didn’t match the signs that were on the grounds which made it difficult to navigate around. We decided that the person or people who designed the map and signs obviously didn’t understand the meaning of “attention to detail”…oh well, it was a nice cool summer day and we enjoyed our time there. The squirrel was in the process of hiding some acorns at the bottom of that tree, which was fun and it had been a long time since I’d seen a robin. They were so common in Ohio, but definitely not in Phoenix.

In our next post we’ll head to Meteor Crater and

take a drive down Route 66 thru Winslow.

One thought on “Birthday Surprise – Day 3 (part 3)

  1. those daisies? (red and yellow flowers) are amazing. you and terry are awesome travelers, nancy — i quite admire your ability to think up a trip and then make it happen. personally, i’m usually good for the thinking it up, not so much for the making it happen…
