Sabbatical = Road Trip!

Imagine a corporation offering you the employee a 2 month sabbatical every 7 years that you work for them. Yes, that is what my husband's company provides. Now, the decision was where to go? The answer was easy - load up the car and tow the Harley (my husband's toy) and head towards the SUN! And a few palm trees and cactus!

We explored Palm Spring, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Chandler, Tucson, Yuma, Las Vegas, Sedona and the Grand Canyon. What were the highlights?
  • It was beyond words to ride from city to city seeing how the topography would change
  • The culinary was a treat to experience - loved the differences in Mexican/Spanish food
  • Each city gave us a new experience
  • The peaceful feeling of the Red Rock Mountains and the various altitudes
  • Wine Tasting in Arizona - very nice wines
  • The Grand Canyon - First time visit in one word - Breathtaking
  • Riding Route 66 on a Harley Road Glide (my husbands favorite part)
  • Gardens with Flowers Blooming (my favorite part)
  • Each day the Sun came out and it was a least 70 degrees
  • Visiting Friends and making new friends

Now, it is time to get back to coloring and creating cards! Perhaps I should color a cactus!
