We left Mesa in April and spent two gorgeous weeks in Sedona where we enjoyed several hikes. My perennial favorite is the Teacup trail with its view of Coffee Pot Rock.
Continuing north, we stopped at several national parks, beginning with the Grand Canyon.
Then we joined up with sister Diana for visits to Zion,
We said good-bye to Diana and moved into Idaho where we saw a marriage proposal at pretty Upper Mesa Falls.
Then moved on to western Montana’s Bitterroot Valley. The Blodgett Canyon Overlook view reminded me of Yosemite Valley.
Then we continued north through Idaho. After stops in Coeur d’Alene and Sandpoint, we hit our northernmost point in Bonners Ferry where we hiked to pretty Pyramid Lake.
We finally made it to the interesting Cat Walk in southwest New Mexico, which just reopened in May after a disastrous flood in 2013.
