Of course we were tracking the weather. MMRP was cold and we knew Sedona was going to be colder with a possibility of snow. So when checking in to the Rancho Sedona RV Park we changed our reservations to three nights instead of five.
They say Sedona occasionally gets a dusting of snow, then it quickly melts. On Christmas Eve they got a few inches and five days later there were only small thin patches on some of the trails that never get sun this time of the year. On New Year’s Eve day in six hours it snowed six inches!
New Year’s Day it was 12 degrees at 9am while we were laboring to get hitched up for various reasons, all related to it being 12 degrees with snow on the ground. Finally we put the Tundra in four wheel drive and got out of that place.
Sedona is a beautiful area with a ton of great mountain biking, but boy oh boy is it ever crowded. Too crowded for us. But then again we always seem to be there on a holiday since we are on a teacher’s schedule. One never knows, but we may not be back to Sedona until Amelia is retired and we can go mid week during the off season.
Once again, we had safe passage on the I-8! Someone recently asked me if I use filters on the photos. My response was, “What are you talking about?”
Próspero Año Nuevo
