Linus Goes to Sedona

When we last left our hero, he was leaving Vegas and headed for Sedona. We got into Phoenix at 1:00, and originally planned to stop at the zoo before heading north. But after we’d gotten the rental car and loaded…

Sedona: Leaving (with a stop at Montezuma’s Castle)

Saturday morning we said good-bye to Sedona. On the way to Phoenix, we stopped at the V-V Ranch for petroglyphs. Those things we saw at Palatki were pictographs (images painted on rock). These would be carved into the rock. It…
