The Blur of Travel

We looked forward to our vacation in Sedona for weeks, and we’ve already been home for two days.  What happened?

Sights seemed clear enough when we were there. We stopped at a wonderful museum in Kingman even though this lady view us with some distrust.  Maybe her vision was blurred.

If you are at the Route 66 Museum, and you like old-fashioned milkshakes and malts you should go across the street to Mr. Dz. Yelp provided this picture, so I’m a bit blurry on the name details.

Mr DzWe spent the first and last night in Laughlin, so we met ourselves coming and going. It was beautiful on the way, but by the way back, the blurry air smeared the town’s beauty.  So enjoy the first glimpse.

We visited a park called Slide Rock on the way home that may have been the most beautiful place in the world. In 1912 a man named Frank Pandry homesteaded it and grew apples.

It’s heyday came and went in a blur, but artifacts remain. It’s definitely worth a visit.

The red blur at the bottom explains how the place got its name. Kids and adults alike still enjoyed the slippery rocks.

Can you imagine a finer setting for an apple orchard?

  1. Lovely photos, Marsha, I especially like the bee on the apple blossom. My husband did Route 66 on a Harley motor cycle in 2004. It was his 50th birthday present to himself. He visited the museum too and generally had a blast.

    • We saw a lot of Harley’s while we were in Sedona. There was a Veteran’s event, and all the riders were over 60, I think. Your husband’s trip had to be fun. The scenery is gorgeous. 🙂
