Red Rocks Rock!

Howdy all!

Been quite hectic of late on the road, and quite a while since I’ve downed tools (laptop, microphone) and chilled a bit in a nice location – even though there’ve been plenty of interesting and unusual places along the way. Let me make amends…

So here we are, at the aptly titled Enchantment Resort, Sedona, Arizona, USA.

This is a real nice hotel and with really picturesque surroundings. It has cabins scattered about the valley and amazing views of red cliffs all around. Breathtakingly beautiful! And the weather ain’t bad of course either. The resort also has a golf course, allegedly a super-duper spa (didn’t get round to trying it out), and wild deer perma-guests that occasionally appear in the clearings around and about the grounds. I really recommend this place if ever you’re in sunny Arizona.

As is often the case on the more exotic of my travels – since pictures speak louder than words, let me give you some photos; no – lots!

Reminds me of the venue of “Under a Blood Red Sky

Just got back from a three-week trip to the Colorado plateau, to Sedona along with the North Rim (Grand Canyon), Zion National Park, Lake Powell, Petrified Forest National Park, etc. DO NOT miss dinner at Elote if you can get in! (Unfortunately they don’t take reservations and most evenings have a line out the door.)

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 4.

G’day possums! Back. In the outback… The next point of call on our tour or northwestern Australia was the Tunnel Creek National Park, around half an hour’s drive from Windjana Gorge. Tunnel Creek itself runs through a natural cave cut into the limestone that was once the Devonian reef here under the ocean. Tourists come […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 3.

Hi all! After our first, somewhat tame forays into the wonderful wizard corner of Oz called Kimberely, it was high time we headed to the hellishly hot central part of the region – into the savanna and nearer to the Great Sandy Desert. For there’s plenty to see there too… Now, if you were to travel […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 2.

G’day folks! I’m back – with tales from the outback… In today’s installment, a bit of narrative, but mostly just lots of pics – both from up in the air and on the ground. The landscapes here are stupefying. Endless horizons and beaches, islands, savannah, rock formations, cliffs. There’s so much to take in… so […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 1.

By way of a preface: Without looking on the Internet, who can tell me which is bigger: the Moon or Australia? This is the first in a mini-series of posts on Kimberley, Australia! I’d heard a lot about this place. That it’s impressively beautiful, with scenic landscapes and fantastic views. But that it’s also huge, hard to […]

Hotel to cathedral.

I’d been wanting to get to Scotland for ages, and just recently I finally made it. But it was only for two days in St Andrews, and although those were a super two days, they hardly equaled ‘doing’ Scotland. Far too short a stay. A proper trip to Scotland requires several days touring the country, driving […]

Australian winter, Scottish summer.

What are the differences between a chilly Australian winter and a hot Scottish whisky summer? There are plenty, but the main ones are: First, here in bonnie Scotland – at least on the eastern side where we were last week – there are no palm trees to be seen out the window. Second, the sun […]
