Arizona – Sedona (May 2013)

And finally I’ve got round to writing about the last part of our trip to Arizona back in May 2013… We drove from the Grand Canyon knowing we only had a couple of days of holiday left.  We were already talking about what adventures and things we’d like to see on our next holiday.  The … Continue reading
