Today we decided to go to Sedona. It is about 90 miles away from Scottsdale, and is supposed to have a "vortex" and a place of healing. Luckily, we are all healthy enough and didn't need to worry about it. We left somewhat early, so we wouldn't have to hike in the nasty heat. Toby really wanted to drive, but had to sit in Robyn's lap, instead.
We got to Sedona at about 10:00. We decided to take a shorter trail (compared to some of the recent ones). The entire trail was about 1.5 miles. There was a little stream that followed the trail, so Toby enjoyed that a lot. He didn't find the sticks that were thrown to him, though. The end of the trail was at Cathedral Rock. It is a huge monolith in the middle of open land. It was getting warm, so we decided to head back to the car. Toby wanted to take another swim, but there were two dogs on the other side. I guess that's good, because no one wants to spend an hour in a hot car with a wet dog!! The way home was uneventful- Toby and I took a nap in the back while Robyn and Annie navigated us home.
When we got back, Annie gave Toby a bath. He ran around the apartment getting everything wet. Or so I'm told. But he did smell good afterwards- with his curl-enhanced look. Since Annie and Tyler both had to work, we made them dinner. We hung out a little and now it is time for bed!
