Sedona and the Main Event!

The following day found us in Sedona, AZ, by way of the scenic Oak Creek Canyon road.  It was a beautiful drive, but there weren’t many places to pull out for photos, so for the most part we just enjoyed the ride.


We were walking around across the road from this sign, and two gentlemen suggested that we go elsewhere, as they thought they had just heard a rattlesnake.  Okay, we’re outta here!!


It was a quick trip, because we had to get back to Vegas to return our rental car.  Our final destination was Salt Lake City, and the cost to drive there and turn in our car was outrageous!!  So we took the car back to Vegas and flew to SLC for a small fraction of the cost. 

Salt Lake City was the location of my nephew’s wedding, and our ultimate destination!  The wedding was on Saturday and we had Friday to do some more sightseeing.  Fall is coming to the mountains.  There was even a little snow on a few of the peaks.


This guy crossed the parking lot in front of us, and even stopped to pose.


Saturday morning came early, and we headed to the campground where the wedding was to be held in a meadow.  We helped decorate the shelter, set up chairs, haul beverages.  It was a lovely ceremony, and after a couple of cool days, it was sunny and beautiful.


The flower girl is the bride’s daughter, and a much loved addition to the family.  I think she may be getting a quilt for Christmas.  We had a chance to spend time with family and friends, with good food, chatting around late night fire pits, and even a hot tub.  I hope we can all get together again soon!

The final shot is my five little nephews, and they actually asked to have their picture taken together!!
