I took my first trip to the desert this Thanksgiving. I few to Tucson; visited the Sonora Desert, then drove through Sedona on my way to the Grand Canyon. The way back brought us back through Sedona. It was wonderful to have a host who had much experience with the Canyon and the desert. Knowing that Craig had hiked down and back when he was 16 with his Dad, and once again with his daughter when she was 16 was part of the experience.
