    1. I know, right? Ain’t nothin’ like ’em! I LOVE Arizona! I could live there. I’d probably get sick of the heat, and I would like to live somewhere with a high chance of snow in the winter, but man, I love to climb and hike and I love those rocks, and I’d be in such good shape, because I’d be out there with every chance I got. A plus, is that it’s dry heat. The humid heat here in Mississippi kicks me in the rump, lays me out flat, and then jumps up and down on me!! In the summer, I do my very best to stay inside air conditioned walls. Ugh! The job is so stinkin’ awesome, I just can’t tell you enough. It’s so great to work with cool, laid back people, with no drama, with work I love, and pay that I didn’t expect, and I am just thanking God every single day. πŸ˜‰


  1. I never knew rocks could look so good! Wow! You sure know how to capture them Carol! Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚


    1. Aw, thanks Sophia. I just don’t think anyone can take a bad picture if they are in Sedona, or anywhere in Arizona, for that matter. I was very impressed with the beauty and colors and shapes here. Just took my breath away. The sunsets are completely awesome, as well as the sunrises. And I wanted to climb and hike all those rocks and moutains. *hugs back* πŸ˜‰


      1. Well, you have an eye for photography for sure hon. I am impressed as well and only by looking at your photo’s! I love sunsets as well and sunrises! Love the colours in the sky! So beautiful! πŸ™‚

        O good golly, lucky you! If I have to do that I will climb over one rock, then crawl the whole way up and then they will have to carry me down! heheheheheh


      2. You are so sweet! I think with beauty all around, anybody could take a great photo! God is the genius with all his masterful works of art. I make sure to enjoy them every day. Thanks! I’ve been meaning to ask you, where does the name ‘Sonel’ come from?
        Rocks, mountains, climbing/scrambling and hiking are some of my weaknesses. I’ve gotten in trouble a few times for scrambling where I wasn’t supposed to. I’ve gotten thrown out of parks, because I’d climb over the fences and go scrambling. I just couldn’t help myself. They beckoned me. They called out to me, inviting me, welcoming me. It would be rude to not accept. πŸ˜‰ I don’t do that anymore, of course, since having Hallie. I don’t put myself in dangerous situations, nor do I want her to be tempted to do the same. I admit, I miss it, though, so when I get a chance to climb and hike rocks and mountains, I’m there, buddy, even if it’s a short hike. Hallie and Mama don’t much care for it, so I’ll let them sit in the shade at the bottom and take off, but not for a long time. I’ll see how close I can get to the top in a short amount of time, enjoy the view for a moment, take photos, and jet back down. πŸ˜‰ Yeah, my ex couldn’t keep up when I went mountain climbing in Alaska. I kept going, though, with just about 4 or 5 other guys that wanted to go on. It was snow-covered and I was so excited, I took a bad step and my leg went through an opening. There was a huge hole, and my whole body could have plummeted through, had I not held the rest of my body back. Thank Goodness my other friends were there to help me up, because I was stuck. I actually don’t remember if we kept going or if that was the point where we started back down. Oh, it’s not like I’m in great shape, because I’m not. I just love it is all. On our way down, my legs were just a shakin’, and they felt like strands of spaghetti. No lie! I’m sure it looked like I was doin’ some kind o’ crazy dance all the way back down the mountain. Ha! I found a tall walking stick along the way, and that helped me brace myself while shakin’ the rest of the way down. Hahaha! I’m sure it was a Kodak moment. I have a few photos from that trip. From the old $10 cheap buy-and-toss cams. I need to look for those and post a couple.
        *hugs back*


    1. Wow, I bet that visit was amazing! I love those four states. I bet that was an amazing area where they all come together. Rocks are awesome, aren’t they?! There was just something even more special about the rocks in Arizona. They were so welcoming and just called to me, saying “Carol, ya know ya want me. Ya know ya wanna climb me and hike up to the top. C’mon, Carol.” And I listened. πŸ˜‰


      1. Man, if I lived close, I’d be trying to take a trip at least once a month or every other month. Shoot, we just drive 3 hours to have lunch. πŸ˜‰ We drive to Bozzier City, Louisiana. Not just for lunch, but we do LOVE Saltgrass Steakhouse, and now that I’m working again, we can go again. We also love Pancho’s – a mexican buffet type, which has the best chili rellenos and sour cream enchiladas, but I live for SS! The shopping there is pretty good, too, plus the zoo in Monroe is nice, and there are plenty of things to do in the area. I’d much rather live close to Sedona, though. Such a cool city, surrounded with breathtaking beauty. πŸ˜‰


      2. Plus, there just seems to be something so magical about that city – moreso around the red rocks. Not sure what it was, but I felt sooo much energy there, and it was invigorating, yet soothing at the same time. Maybe it’s just that I love beautiful rocks, hills and mountains; perhaps the climbing and hiking that I love. Not sure what it is, but I love it there.


      3. I read a little about energy vortexes there, but didn’t really get a chance to look for any. I’ve climbed a lot of rocks and mountains and all I know is that in Sedona, it was a tremendously different experience and energy there than anywhere else I’ve been. A very interesting and cool place, indeed. πŸ˜‰
