Rain in Suns Territory

If you were a kid in the 90s living in Belgium, if you were a huge basketball fan, and of Charles Barkley in particular (ok I might have been the only one in that situation) … then Phoenix becomes a must see on your bucket list. So if your wife offers you tickets to see a Suns game, you can then consider your life complete! (Or at least partially).
We spent a couple of days in Phoenix with Jack (a friend of Maëlle’ s grandparents) who took us to Sedona, around town and to the basketball game. Sedona proved to be a perfect appetizer for the amazing scenery to come. And apparently, the area is full of positive energy vortexes, which would make it an ideal landing spot for Martians if they ever choose to come visit!
Since we’re great planners, we waited for the one rainy day of the year to head out of Phoenix and towards the West coast. In fact, “rainy” is a euphemism. “Pellety” would be more appropriate.
After drying off and spending the night with Bill and Dana, we set off into the desert!

    I am flabbergasted, in awe in front of your pictures even though they can’t convey the truly amazing beauty of all those landscapes, as you say! It reminds me of my first impression when I saw the Grand Canyon. It’s beyond words. I am going to repeat myself: the happiness that your “adventure in words and pictures” brings me is just fabulous! Big hug! 🙂

    It’s incredible weather to have where the sun shines most of the time! Windy rain, stinging hail–we’re also grateful that your kind hosts gave you cover and comfort. We’ve been told of flash flood dangers in the Phoenix area at certain times of year. Gorgeous photos of people, places, & nature!
