A post from Kelli–
I’m working on a series of posts summarizing and sharing all of the fun that I’ve had on my recent trip to Arizona.
The first day of driving was a long one, but we ended out the day by visiting Sedona. When we were driving through, they just so happened to have a little craft/flea market going on that we stopped at. It was at the end of the day an many vendors were packing up there stuff, but we were able to visit a few.
Many had crafts, clothing, or jewelry that they were selling. I found this wonderful puzzlebox–
After talking to the seller, he told me that he makes these with his family in their family workshop. I was amazed by the excellent craftsmanship and family dedication that he shared. When looking for souveniers, I always want to find things that are authentic or were actually handmade by people, not produced in some factory. I was soooo glad to find this! And next door was a vendor selling popcorn–What else could a girl want?!?!
On our drive out, we were also able to see the beautiful red rocks of Sedona.
They are so different from what we have here in Iowa. Different, but still beautiful! And we were there at about the perfect time for some great shots. After this little stop, we headed out and made it further up north to Flagstaff for an overnight.
Stay tuned to see where the rest of our travels took us in exploring the great state of Arizona.
