It Never Gets Old

I don’t know why I love you
But I do.

These days that tune is everywhere on TV in an Expedia ad. It’s a sentiment that might as easily apply to many other things: the red rock of Sedona, for example.

It’s been a few years since we’ve been here, but the red rock endures. And I love it. It never gets old.

Our walk was a 3.6-mile loop around Courthouse Butte and Bell Rock. Like most desert hikes, it was mostly up and down, down and up. In that distance I learned that although the red rock never gets old, sometime in the last few years I did. Whew.

    Isabel – when I see pictures like these I often wonder how many other people have stood in the same spot and taken a similar picture.
    Looking back from the north side of Bell Rock towards Chimney Rock is also another great picture and vista.

        Well, I know what you mean about sore muscles.
        Last night was our annual Music Festival gala, which I emcee.

        I had also purchased two boxes of wine (24 bottles) to be sold there. In addition, a school band that was performing didn’t have a set of drums so I had to take mine for them.

        I’m paying up for all the lugging today!
        Tom
