My trip to Sedona



From July 3rd to July 10th, my husband and I spent a week in Sedona, Arizona.  "Going to Arizona in July, you must be crazy.  It would be 120 degrees and you will love it", one of my friends said.  In actuality, she was wrong.  During the first night when we were having dinner on the balcony under the moonlight with the red Cathodral rock in the distance, I was a little cold.  It was 70 degree F.  I told my husband that I wished I had brought cloths other than the tank tops.  The next day, we decided to do a short but strenuous hike to the top of the Cathodral rocks and it was fantastic.  Every time when we had a water break, a cool breeze swept through us so nice that made me want to cry out loud, "I'm in heaven!"  Surrounded by red rocks in many intricate shapes, it was not hard to think that way.  Sedona is the most beautiful place I have ever hiked.  It would be a tie comparing with hikes we did in the Autria Alps last summer.  The deal I got for renting my condo at the Sedona Summit Resort is really hard to beat.  I hope we will go and visit Sedona soon.

Big news is:  My novel "Last Kiss In Tiananmen Square" will be published by Fantasy Island Book Publishing (FIBP)

More posts about travel, my novel and books by FIBP authors will be forthcoming.

Congrats on the publication of your novel, Lisa! FIBP is a wonderful outfit! Your pics are great. We were in Moab, Utah and it looked quite similar. You're right--the weather was dramatic and surprisingly comfortable.

Lisa, these are gorgeous pictures! Congratulations on your upcoming novel. As soon as it's out in print I will buy it for my husband (and then I'll sneak it away from him and read it too)!

Amazing photos I love Sedona too, Known for its beautiful and serene setting amidst the Red Rocks, the town is also famous for its vibrant arts community. immigration canada accepts businesspersons and skilled workers from every part of the world.
