Arizona & Vegas 2005

Wow, it has been a while since this site got updated. I didn’t go on any big trips yet and it’s June 2005. Of course, we are heading back to Crested Butte in July again! The picture above is at sunset in Sedona, AZ.

Las Vegas, Nevada

It’s March and the Illini are ranked number one in the country. They also get the number one number one seed and what better place to be than Vegas during the first round of March Madness. Driving from Phoenix to Vegas means going across Hoover Dam. I stopped and snapped a few pics while I was there.

Somewhere in between the gambling and 52 games that weekend, we actually went hiking at Red Rock State Park. (Mars Bitches)

Sedona, Arizona

Lisa came in from Denver for a weekend so we headed up to Sedona for some tourist sight seeing. We took the 2.5 hour Pink Jeep Tour which took us to the Broken Arrow Trail.. Despite the off road terrain, the ride was very smooth due to the jeep’s suspension. I think that 2.5 hours is just about right for the jeep tour. Sedona always seems to be raining in one part and sunny in the others.

After the jeep tour we took a trip to Slide Rock State Park which features a natural water slide. In the summer’s the water is packed with people. It was a little cold there, as you can see from the jackets we’re wearing. But we did see a couple people in the water.

After a quick lunch it was off to see more of Sedona…

The next day, back in Phoenix… we hiked Camelback Mountain from the east side. It’s a pretty quick hike, about 45 minutes to the top. About 5 minutes into the hike we can across a rattler. We waited a bit for it to move, but it just sat there. After a while we thought we should take a picture of it, and wouldn’t you know it, as soon as the camera came out, it moved. Maybe it was camera shy. You can only see its tail in the picture.
